Listed below are all the announcements happening in our around Fitzroy over the coming days and weeks.  To move between announcements, you can use the sidebar on the left or click on the Permalink at the bottom of each story.


Please help us to fill our cases!

bulging-suitcaseA team of 24 people from Fitzroy will visit Onialeku Primary School in Uganda during July.  From small beginnings in their church in 2008 the school that we built in 2015 now has 550 pupils.  The children are from poor families and cannot afford the many things that we take for granted.  The team has already stock piled lots of things to take with us like toiletries, children’s books, wool and knitting needles etc etc, but we would value your help with the following;

  • Simple board games, puzzles and jigsaws (focusing on words, numbers and shapes).  Have your children finished playing with them and are they in good condition?  Alternatively have a look in your local charity shops.  Remember to keep them simple as the children will have little or no previous experience of such items. 
  • Boys boxer shorts – boys from P6 up to small men size (new please) we already have lots for the girls.
Please place them on the table at the front of the church beside the door into the Welcome Area.

As always, thank you to the people of Fitzroy who live out Jesus’ Words of Matthew 25 v 31-46


Data protection

data-protectionIn order to comply with the new Data Protection Regulations, Fitzroy has developed a Data Protection Policy, which explains how we use and protect the information we hold on you, and how you can find out more.

We have placed this policy, along with a longer explanation, on our website (, and a notice will be placed in the Welcome Area in the coming weeks. Also in the next few weeks, we will be holding a short training session for leaders to discuss our responsibilities and make sure everyone knows how to take appropriate care of your data.

Foodbank May update

foodbankApril was a very busy month and stocks were running very low. It is only thanks to our churches that we can keep going. We have just completed a one day Tesco food collection and yet again it was heartening to see the generosity of the shoppers. They donated a fabulous 1278.84kg which has gone some way to filling up those empty spaces on our warehouse shelves.

We still have some shortage items and are always grateful of any donations but we’d be especially pleased to get
Plain rice
Tinned tomatoes
Tinned fruit
Tinned potatoes /instant mash    

We are out of toiletries and whilst food has to be our priority toiletries are always thankfully received
Shower gel
Tooth paste
Tooth Brushes - Are in short supply
Shaving foam

A big thank you to everyone who supports us through prayer and donations of food and money. We really could not exist without you.

If you have a bit more time to spare and would like to be volunteer for a shift, I am short of volunteers on a Friday morning.
This takes place at Mornington Community Project, 117 Ormeau Road between 10am and 1:30pm
If this is something you would like to know more about please contact me and I can tell you more about it.

Many thanks from your Church Champion, Brenda Johnston
