Yours Faithfully

Full of feel-good stories that celebrate our Services, our colleagues, volunteers, funders, supporters, and partners, as well as the children and families we work with, Yours Faithfully is Spurgeons' very own quarterly magazine. You can request a digital copy of past and present issues on this page. Alternatively, if you would like to sign up to our mailing list and receive Yours Faithfully by post please contact supportercare@spurgeons.org. We hope you'll be inspired by these and more stories of the vital work that Spurgeons delivers in our local communities day-to-day, hopefully just as much as we are.
