We run the foodbank twice a week
Tuesdays and Thursdays 1 - 3 pm
During the last year we were able to help many people in the local community in their time of crisis. At the foodbank we offer tea, coffee and a prayer. This has enabled us to make friendships with some who come back for a chat and to tell of prayers answered (Praise God.)
We also have made good contacts with the local community police who drop in, and with local groups like Slimming World and Network Rail whos generosity at Christmas enabled us to give out food parcles and presents to people in the local community who we were aware of having a need but would not approach a foodbank directly. (The elderly) It was much appreciated by those who received it, and they were so blessed that someone had thought about them, particularly at this time of year.
We also have experimented with a drop in and basic cooking skills course and look forward to developing this in 2016.
We are also looking at starting a Celebrate Recovery course on Saturday afternoons from 1 - 3 pm. This is for anyone looking to recover from anything as we believe we all have fallen short. This is a safe place for anyone to come and be healed through the love of Christ no matter what your Hurts, Habits or Hangups are.
Alpha - a course helping you to discover more about the Christian faith looking to start end of January.
