Although FoStJ is primarily focused on maintaining the fabric and grounds of StJohn’s Church for the community, we are also mindful of the concerns of our community in these difficult times. We therefore support the initiatives of those in our community.
If you are in need of help or support please contact our local support community at Coronavirussupport@merrowresidents.org or telephone the MRA secretary on 07928 809458.
The PCC of St John the Evangelist is committed to the safeguarding, care and nurture of everyone within our community. For further information contact Rosanne Bond, Parish Safeguarding Officer on 01483 579462 or Rev. Rona Stuart-Bourne on 01483 572207.

Also Surrey County Council has set up a Community Helpline number, which is live from Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.
0300 200 1008
The community helpline has been set up to direct residents to services that can help during the coronavirus pandemic:
• To help direct residents to services that can help provide support to those who need it, such as picking up shopping, prescription collections or having someone who can be a telephone friend.
• To provide advice on where to register your offer of help to support your community
The helpline will not be able to provide any public health advice (please use existing services such as NHS 111) or answer general enquiries relating to council services.
Please do pass this number onto vulnerable or elderly friends and neighbours.
