The five churches, with support from the wider community and the Methodist churches, fund the South West Wight Youth Worker in partnership with YFC, and a Community Outreach worker for the more vulnerable members of the community in partnership with Age UK.
Each year we hold a series of Lent Lunches, raising money for a variety of island-based and international charities.
There are drop-off/collection points for the IOW Foodbank at St Peter’s Shorwell and St Mary’s Brighstone.
We hold a number of fundraising events and concerts at the churches, throughout the year. Individuals and groups wishing to use one of the churches to fundraise for a registered charity are invited to contact Barbara in the church office.
The Children’s Society, both locally on the island and nationally, is supported by regular giving and one-off events, as is Christian Aid.
