Along with other organisations in the city, they have been able to help those most in need.

The community team from the church have managed to deliver 88 'Easter Hampers' to needy and vulnerable families in Salisbury. 

The Pantry Partnership, based in Victoria Park, get a regular fruit and veg donation from Waitrose which they have given to St Paul's to distribute. 

Not only that, thanks to Sarum College they were able to include an Easter Egg for every child and Roly's Fudge have donated all of their fudge they've been unable to sell.

Kerry Badger the church's Community Pastor said:

"It has been an amazing opportunity, we have all been very busy, but actually it has been an absolute thrill to be part of what God is doing in our City. We have had our son and future daughter-in-law with us and it has been great to sort the food as a family. It has been fun and cut down contact with other people. 

We have also been working as a church family, we have been able to supply boxes to Harnham All Saints for their vulnerable families and St Francis. I thank God and give him all the glory because we have the opportunity to provide for some of the most vulnerable families in our city and I love the way he cares for them."

Last Wednesday (1st April) they managed to reach 25 families, while on Thursday (2nd) they distributed a further 63 boxes. 

But they say this is just the start and they are now in contact with the council about developing the scheme. 

As well as the deliveries, 40 volunteers from the church are helping people across Salisbury by doing things like picking up prescriptions and doing their shopping.
