Christian Aid Week
CHRISTIAN AID WEEK 2022 is MAY 15 TO 21

After two frustrating years of inactivity, Christian Aid in Minehead is pleased to be back on the streets of Minehead and Alcombe to show our commitment to this worthwhile international charity.
The world overall is a very troubled place and each and every one of us can identify an area in the world where urgent aid is needed to avoid humanitarian disaster. The most current news will always be at the forefront of our minds and grabbing our attention. However, while the war rages in Ukraine, people are still starving in Yemen and Afghanistan, families in Haiti are still homeless after not one but two earthquakes in the last ten years. Global warming is contributing to severe droughts in Africa, flooding in Asia forcing communities to leave their places they have known as home for many years.
Christian Aid assists these communities to re-build their lives and find again their self-respect. Christian Aid needs our help to be able to bring help to those who need it most.
This year, Christian Aid in Minehead is pleased to announce the return of the popular Rainbow Fair. On Saturday May 14th between 10am and noon in Minehead Methodist Church, the churches in Minehead will have tables of items to sell, each table displaying a different colour of the rainbow. Come along and find yourself a bargain.
Saturday May 14th, Friday/Saturday May 20th/21st Christian Aid volunteers will be on the streets with their collecting buckets, Please be as generous as you have been in past years, because every penny counts towards the work of Christian Aid. Giving envelopes will also be placed in all of the churches.
One of the most striking images used by Christian Aid is that of the women of the communities walking for miles to find water to take back to their village, This water will be dirty and contaminated but is their only option, until Christian Aid can provide a bore hole and pump to deliver clean fresh water from below ground.
To demonstrate this point, a group of Christian Aid volunteers will walk from St Michael's the Archangel, Alcombe along Townsend Road and Friday Street and on to the Methodist Church on the Avenue. We will not simply be walking but carrying a 10litre water jerrycan filled with water. We will also be carrying donation buckets for your donations. On arrival at the church the water will not be wasted or thrown away but used to irrigate the flowers or to make a cup of tea.
Please come along and support us.

Request for help from The Cinnamon Trust 

The Cinnamon Trust is the national pet care charity for the elderly or terminally ill.  We offer free pet care to enable owners and their companion animals to stay together. We have been asked for some dog walking support for a resident of Alcombe but don't have enough local volunteers to be able to help so wondered whether any of the church family might like to volunteer.   Please email   for details.

West Somerset Food Cupboard, May 2022

Newsletter - May 2022

Dear friends and supporters of the West Somerset Food Cupboard (WSFC), we've got sooooo much to tell you!

A new ‘West Somerset Food Cupboard' charity has been established. The work of the Food Cupboard is still very much embedded in and supported by the Church of St. Michael the Archangel in Alcombe, but establishing it as a separate charity now opens up new opportunities for its work.
A fabulous new website www.wsfoodcupboard.org.uk has been developed for us by James Cooper of www.jpc-design.com to whom we are very grateful; we hope you'll take a look.
A Local Pantry is opening at the Food Cupboard on Tuesday 10th May. This is a membership scheme that enables local people to access fresh, chilled and non-perishable supermarket surplus food and other produce at very low cost. Please do read about this new initiative and how to apply for membership on the Get Help page of our website www.wsfoodcupboard.org.uk/gethelp
The provision of emergency free food for those in crisis will continue as it has for the past 15 years at the WSFC and, in additional to its normal provision, is currently helping support some Ukrainian refugees as they arrive here in our community.
96 food parcels have been distributed during April, and food has been provided for other community groups working to support those experiencing food insecurity.

None of the above would be possible without generous donors, food collection point hosts and our wonderful team of dedicated volunteers. THANK YOU ALL FOR THE PART THAT YOU PLAY
