The Soup Run

The Soup Run is a service run by Christians in our area.
It is a combined effort run by all Colchester’s churches by rota to serve disadvantaged people in Colchester with soup and sandwiches every day.

St Peter ad Vincula Church, Coggeshall’s turn is every second Tuesday evening of the month. The service is changing the way it operates and currently we are being asked to supply Cuppa Soups and Chocolate biscuits which will need to be delivered. Our co-ordinator has moved away from the village and we are looking for someone to take on this role. Further information can be obtained from the churchwardens.

New helpers are always welcome, distributors will need DBS checks. Do let me know if you would like to be involved.

For I was hungry and you fed me,
I was thirsty and you gave me water
– Matthew 25: 35-45

We ask that people donate soup at our harvest festival and the response, as you can see, has always been very good. In future, these donations of soup will need to be in packet form and not tins as previously.

Please donate if you can.

Church Cleaning

If you are able to spare a couple of hours once a month on a Saturday morning, please do come along and help out our church cleaning team.  It is hard work keeping our church looking beautiful and welcoming, and, as the saying goes, many hands make light work.  There is also the bonus of sharing time with friends, and making new ones, and the added bonus of a tea break fortified by Ron’s carrot cake.    A warm welcome awaits you.
