The Food Bank
'Whoever has two shirts must give one to the man who has none, and whoever has food must share it.' (Luke 3:11) A Food Bank has been set up by Mildenhall Baptist Church to help families who find themselves in sudden financial difficulties.
The Food Bank exists to give short term help at a critical time of need. Anyone referred by Social Services, by their doctor, or, in some cases, by their Church leader, receives assistance in the form of a food parcel containing provisions to last for about a week.
The Food Bank is run from King's Project (opposite Bussen & Parkin's) and is open on Monday and Friday, from 10.00 a.m. To 12 noon.If you would like to donate items you can take them directly to King's Project or put them in the basket at the back of St. Mary's Church. Canned meat, fruit, vegetables, packets of pasta or rice and tea or coffee are ideal as they have a good shelf life. They are also suitable for providing family meals.As we place our donations in the basket, perhaps we could also pray for God's blessing to be with the family who receives the food.
Chicken Foot Evening
For those who have never played before and those who have. An evening to enjoy together. You are welcome to bring snacks or drink to share, Please sign the list so that we know how many to expect.

Thoughts from Time together Day – “Living Stones” - Sept 20th
Time of fellowship, very thought provoking much to think about of growing together as living stones.
Nice atmosphere, of unity, good teaching and sharing.
As well as inspiring content of the day, it was also good to be sharing with each other in an informal situation - getting to know each other better.
It was helpful to learn from each other and to think about what God is planning for us to do in the future in His church.
Felt we all had valuable contributions to make a friendly enabling atmosphere. I enjoyed it , felt we could have done an extra hour as less covered than last time, when we had longer. I look forward to next year.
At last I managed to make it . I learnt a lot through what was being said, one good thing that emerged God inspired me to trust Him more.
As you are important ‘Living stone’ of St. Mary’s church - please don’t miss the next “Time together “.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
