Gift Aid 2019/20: Until the end of the social-distancing guidelines it will not be possible to deliver the annual letter to those members and friends of KMC who subscribe and add gift aid to their donations. If you are using the enforced isolation to prepare your Self-Assessment Tax return and would like your annual statement now, please telephone Geoffrey Wallwork on 634603 and I will post your letter out to you.

After Lockdown! When we are once again back in our Church building , perhaps we could have an exhibition of everything we have done during this isolation; i.e., crafts, photos, plants, sewing scrubs, children’s pictures
and activities etc., any ideas contact me please. Something to look forward to! Sue Stinchcombe : K. 621322

An update from HOPE CENTRAL:
Unless you are still visiting Booths and/or the Coop, it’s now more difficult to donate food to The Welcome/Hope Central Foodbank.
An alternative would be to provide money, which Hope Central can then spend on the foodstuffs that they are short of in any particular week, and the easy way to donate is via:

Action for Children has launched an Emergency Coronavirus Appeal to help provide essentials to the most vulnerable families that they support across the UK and those potentially affected in the future.

Prayer themes for May
Wherever we are today in our human fears for the future, we pray that God will do a new work in our hearts, our church, our nation and our world.
We ask Him to unleash the power of His Holy Spirit and give us the mountain moving faith to believe that the best is yet to come. Amen.
