Love in a Box

Love in a box

Foots Cray Baptist Church supports the Mustard Seed Charity, who sent three lorry loads of Christmas gifts to Moldova in Eastern Europe every year.  These gifts are shared among children in hospitals and orphanages, or living in very poor conditions.  Despite the pandemic we assembled several boxes of gifts for these children in 2020 and we held a similar appeal for 2021.

Please visit www.msrm.org.uk for more information.

Harvest Thanksgiving and Quiz

Harvest 2020The pandemic forced us to celebrate the harvest very differently in 2020.  We very much missed singing the traditional harvest hymns!  We were grateful to the young people in our Sunday Club for their contributions to our display.

This year we held a more traditional harvest celebration in 2021 on Sunday 10 October.

We held a supper and quiz on Saturday 9th  which was great fun.  

The proceeds for the quiz and an appeal at the service will enable us to send over £200 to Operation Agri

Macmillan Coffee Afternoon

This was held on Saturday 25 September 2021 and over £300 was raised for Macmillan Cancer Support.  The charity was founded in 1911 by Douglas Macmillan, who lived in Knoll Road, Sidcup and worshipped at this church.  His first wife is buried in the graveyard.

We expect to have a similar event in 2022, so watch this page for news.
