Community resources during the Coronavirus Crisis

During the current crisis there is so much information out there and new information is coming out all the time so it is difficult to work out where to go for help. This page is designed to bring together some of the information and help out there in one place. Please also contact us if you need to via the church office on 01689 800291 or facebook or our contact page

The best place for correct and up to date information on the Coronavirus is the Government website. You can find more local advice on the Croydon Council Website which also gives advice on if you find yourself in hardship or you need advice on benefits etc.
