Chaplaincy Team- Autumn 2 Mission for St Matthias

While volunteering this morning at the St Matthias Community Centre, the Chaplaincy Team came up with a mission and need your help.

Over the next 2 weeks, we would like you to donate dinner plates and strong plastic shopping bags to the front office and we will give them to Sister Chris and Neighbours in Poplar to help them with their dinners for the vulnerable in our community and the food bank. There mission is to feed 400 people on Christmas day so we would love to donate that many plates.

Please see the videos of the Chaplaincy Team below and the St Matthias Community Centre poster of events.
