Thank you to the Holy Trinity congregation who support and collects donations for the foodbank.

East Grinstead Foodbank support local individuals and families in crisis who cannot afford to put food on the table, referred to us by local agencies, (such as Children & Family Centres, local primary and secondary schools, churches, hospitals, Citizens Advice, GP surgeries, in fact over 50 agencies can refer clients to us).

In addition to giving clients food and household items sufficient for at least 3 days in exchange for a referral voucher, we also talk to Clients and try to understand their needs and situation, and – where appropriate – look to ‘signpost’ them to other groups, such as Citizens Advice, CAP, or other agencies who may also be able to assist.

YOUR PCC


Eternal Father,
whose Son Jesus Christ ascended to the throne of heaven
that he might rule over all things as Lord and King:
keep the Church in the unity of the Spirit
and in the bond of peace,
and bring the whole created order to worship at his feet;
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
Amen.
