Haslemere Food Bank
We have supported the Food Bank as a church community by collecting items at Harvest, at Christmas & at Easter on the road runs to individual houses. The pandemic means there is a constant demand for items. If you have any of the following to spare and can, do drop off at the Methodist Church in Haslemere during Food Bank opening times, on a Wednesday or Friday morning between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m., or at one of the Collection points at
Items they would welcome at present:
All in date, unopened tinned and packaged food items, sanitary products and domestic cleaning products are very much appreciated. With some items more in need than others, donations of the items listed below are particularly welcome:
Tinned pasta (spaghetti, ravioli etc)
Jam / marmalade
Tinned meat meals
Thank you for your support for the Food Bank. With your help, we will be able to help as many people as possible in our community who find themselves in need of support.
A huge thank you to those who have already donated and to those kind people who regularly donate.
Sight Loss Friendly Church
We are now registered as a Sight Loss Friendly Church as we work towards making our online and real time services more accessible to all. We’ve got lots of work to do and there will be opportunities for us all to access training and resources to support those in our congregation with sight concerns.
Eco Church Award
A small group of members has been investigating the idea of achieving an Eco church award. It’s been done using a survey supplied by A.Rocha, the administrative organisation for the award, just looking at where we are now. If you would like to know more, visit the page in the Menu bar.
We have submitted an application and have been awarded a Bronze Award.
Introducing our updated Sensory Garden
Over the summer of 2019, we started putting the structure in to the back garden of a Sensory Garden, using as many recycled materials as possible. Tom, from Beacon Hill Nursery School, has been brilliant and re-landscaped the area for us during summer 2022, so it can be actively used by the children in the week and the church community at other times.
