Morland Church ‘St Lawrence’ Emergency Fund
Morland Church is dedicated to St Lawrence, a Deacon of the Early Church, who was dedicated to caring for the poor and needy. He was killed for his refusal to hand over money collected for the need to the Roman authorities. When asked to hand over the church’s treasure, he rounded up those in his care and said “here is the treasure of the Church.” Our fund, in his memory, seeks to use our wealth to serve those in need, who are precious in God’s sight.
