Don’t forget that you can help raise funds for Wesley Hall whenever you shop online!

The pandemic, lockdowns and the continuing restrictions have made our usual fundraising difficult or impossible.

But there’s something you can do to help without spending a single extra penny. For both Christmas shopping and other purchases through the year, including things like white goods, insurance and even holidays, if you make your online purchase through easyfundraising Wesley Hall will get a small percentage every time. And every penny adds up!

With Christmas fast approaching, it seems like a good time for a reminder, especially as you may prefer to go online this year to maintain social distancing.

You can use easyfundraising to shop with over 4000 retailers including Amazon, Argos, John Lewis, ASOS, and Booking.com – and when you shop, you’ll raise a free donation for Wesley Hall funds every time. It’s that easy, and always worth checking which retailers donate – you might be surprised. It’s not only shops, but insurance companies, travel companies, and more.

You may have known about this for a long time, but always forget to go via easyfundraising when you’re actually shopping online. There are two features which will help:
– The Donation Reminder automatically lets you know when you’re on any site that offers donations with #easyfundraising. It even highlights retailers who donate when you search in Google.
– And if you do most of your online shopping on your phone, the Easyfundraising App means you’ll never miss a chance to donate.

December dates for your diary – Advent, Christmas and into the New Year

Sunday 28 November is the First Sunday in Advent. It’s a busy time of year, and while we’re delighted to be able to spend time with others this Advent, we are of course mindful of the continuing risks posed by the Coronavirus pandemic. We’re doing things a little differently this year (see ‘What to expect…‘) – the most noticeable change is that we are doing our fundraising Christmas Market after the service every Sunday in Advent, rather than as a separate event, with lunches served after the Carol Service on 19 December:

  • Christmas TreeSunday 28 November: Advent Service, 11am. We will light the first Advent candle during the Sunday Service.
    Followed by Refreshments and Christmas Market.
  • Sunday 5 December: Gift Service, 11am
    We will be accepting monetary gifts for Voluntary Services Lewisham to use for the elderly and children in need in the local community.
    Followed by Refreshments and Christmas Market.
  • Sunday 12 December: Service with Holy Communion, 11am
    Followed by Refreshments and Christmas Market.
  • Sunday 19 December: Carol Service, 11am
    Some to sing, some to listen to…
    Followed by (pre-booked) Lunches and Christmas Market.
  • Saturday 25 December: Christmas Day Service, 10.30am
    A slightly earlier than usual service. Children are asked to bring a present that they’ve received, to show & tell.
  • Please note: there is no service at Wesley Hall on Sunday 26 December or Sunday 2 January.

We look forward to seeing you at one or more of these events and services!

The Wesley Hall Sunday Service details for December 2021 to February 2022 have now also been added to the online calendar.
