Used Postage Stamps - Mary S has been collecting our used postage stamps and sending them to The Bible Society for their Christmas Appeal. This appeal finishes at the end of January 2020. However, the Red Cross charity shop in Emsworth is happy to have used stamps. So a small box has been placed in the Welcome area at St John the Baptist Church if you are looking for a good cause for your stamps.

Blue Gift Aid Envelopes - Please complete your name and address on a blue envelope if you are able to Gift Aid your donation to the church.  Thank you.

However, if you make a regular donation, either as a tax payer or not, the preferred way to give is through the Parish Giving Scheme, which saves much time for our volunteers. For more information speak to the Treasurer or a Churchwarden.
