During the depression, the women of the church began to make pasties to sell to the community to help meet church expenses. This activity has become a church tradition and has grown over the years to become part of Ely's heritage. It and similar activities have enabled the Church to remain a stable part of the Ely community. Pasties are produced on the 3rd Tuesday of six months during the year, October, November, January, February, March and April. If you would like to order pasties or would like to become involved in the Pasty Making, please contact us at
