You cannot see a trace

of me sleeping in my sleeping bag

in woolen underwear.

Our church continues to receive giving and donations through our new online and mobile app platforms. Thank you for trying it out, here are the links again for you to sign up and give easily from your computer with Vanco:

or your phone or tablet with Vanco Mobile Faith Engagement App:

Dear friends,
Our St Helena church has provided an on-line app for use on your phone or tablet to give remotely over the last two years.
This app, GivePlus, is managed by Vanco, a finance company ensuring online payment processing with donations received for our church bank account.
The GivePlus app is being retired as of this month, and a new app will take its place, called Vanco Mobile Faith Engagement App. 
  • Download the Vanco Mobile app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.
  • Find our church and log in using your previous GivePlus Mobile username and password.
  • Or set up your user account in minutes.
Do let me know if you have any questions.
