  • Somerset Vicar’s “Twin My Vaccine” campaign.

    A little while ago, Roger drew our attention to this scheme to help the world’s poorest get the Covid vaccine. It’s been an amazing success, as reported by the BBC. In fact, the £80k quoted there is out of date. As of writing this on 20th April, the Just Giving page shows £123k.

Safeguarding in the church community – making our church safe for young people and vulnerable adults – is everyone’s responsibility.
