St. John and St. Anne Churches Parish of Hythe


Dear members of St John and St Anne's churches 

Re " Impact of Covid 19 on our Church lives and Church income "

At St Johns and St Anne’s we serve many people in many ways. Whilst during the Covid-19 pandemic our buildings may not be open we are still worshipping together on line and serving our community through our Support Hub, as well as providing on line activities and connecting with groups such as our Wellbeing drop-in, Little Footprints, Toddliewinks and Vision youth group. In addition we are seeking to support the bereaved at this very difficult time. In all these and many more on line activities we seek to be a channel of God’s love to those looking to our church for help and encouragement.

The impact of the closure of our church buildings and halls has resulted in a significant loss of income and costs have not reduced by the same level.  If you have found this time of worship, our support groups and any of our on line activities helpful then please may I ask you to donate as generously as you are able through the link to our online giving scheme – https://www.give.net/stjohnshythe  Alternatively you may donate via bank transfer, or by cheque (please contact office@stjohnshythe.org for details). 

With many thanks for your support in enabling our church to continue to serve our community.  Stay safe and keep well. With our prayers and many blessings to you and your families at this time.

Jo (Vicar of Hythe)
