FoodBank

Very many thanks to all who support FoodBank. The analysis of 2020 for Cambridge FoodBank notes that 9.7% more food was distributed than in the previous year, which itself was a record. 144 tonnes of food were distributed through Cambridge FoodBank/FairBite, up 44% on the previous year. Supported by donations from Rotary and our local school and Co-Op, our church delivers to the depot about 3.1 tonnes per year. 

As usual, tinned meat, fruit and veggies are especially welcome; oh, and custard powder! Please leave your generous donations at Church or near the front door of Glebe School.

Thank you.

On-line Taizé Service

During these exceptional times Kay is holding an online Taizé service on the first Sunday of each month using the Zoom conferencing program. You won't need any specialist computer skills because she will send out easy-to-follow joining instructions nearer the time.

The service will have to be a slightly simplified version but still have all of the usual elements of prayer, silence, readings and singing. Kay will lead the singing but the rest of us will have to mute our microphones to avoid latency issues. So we won’t be singing in full harmony, but each of us will be singing alone with Kay, we will hear her but she will not be able to hear us.

Please be ready online at 7.30pm on the first Sunday of each month (having read Kay's joining email) to allow time for everyone to greet each other and also familiarize themselves with the Zoom platform and its controls. The service will end at approximately 8:45pm.

If you would like to take part in this lovely service please email Kay  at singing.kay@gmail.com for the Zoom link and instructions on how to take part.
