Harvest Love Gift
to Taunton Foodbank
The Harvest love gift will be donated to the Taunton Foodbank, which is part of a nationwide network of food banks run by the Trussell Trust, a charity founded on Christian principles to support people locked in poverty.
The Taunton Foodbank provides a minimum of three days’ nutritionally-balanced emergency food to people who have been referred in crisis, as well as support to help people resolve the crises they face.
Last year, 4,900 three-day emergency food supplies were given to people in crisis and there has been a huge increase in demand for the service since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic.
At the end of June this year, the food bank had fed 4,374 people (up from 2,643 for the same period in 2019), including some families in the village, and the need is expected to increase in the next few months.
Please make donations by bank transfer to the Creech St Michael Baptist Church account:-
Sort Code - 089299 ; Account Number - 65227310; Name - Zion Baptist Church CSM No 1 and add the reference 'Foodbank'.
If it is eligible for Gift Aid, please add 'G Aid.'

Generosity is part of the normal Christian life. We have an amazingly generous Father in heaven who pours out his unrestrained love to us. So when it comes to reflecting His nature we should do it in our words, our actions and our finances.
We believe it is right to give to the local church as it seeks to further the work of God in a locality as well as giving to other charitable needs, Christian and non-Christian. Members at CSMBC are encouraged to give regularly, most setting up a Direct Debit. If you would like to set up a direct debit, email the treasurer here.
We promise to steward your gifts to the ministry with wisdom and integrity, and we believe that every penny you give is a seed sown into our collective aim of the extension of the glorious kingdom of Jesus. We pray that the Father in Heaven will bless you in greater measure, remembering that you can never out-give God.
