So much enthusiasm was generated that it all became a bit of a blur when all the KS1 and KS2 children from Richmond Methodist School visited the Church for a harvest service. What is clear is the huge amount of food brought as donations for the Store House Food Bank.
StoreHouse based at the Influence Church Richmond is designed to help meet the needs of the wider community through providing emergency food supplies to those who, through whatever circumstances, are not able to provide adequately for themselves or their immediate family. Through a 'food bank' style scheme, StoreHouse will help meet needs caused by rising food prices and increased poverty. For more information visit the StoreHouse website. This is an external website over which the NYDC have no control.

Creation reclaimed some of its natural order and we were...
