As a church, we have a desire to benefit our local community and show the love of Jesus in tangible, practical ways.
During the pandemic, Meals for You was established to provide support for those in our local community who were facing difficulties. We are using our church facilities, volunteers and resources to prepare freshly cooked meals and distribute them each Thursday. As well as meal support, we are now offering cooking courses in conjunction with Foodwise, showing participants how to cook healthy low cost meals.
This initiative started at the beginning of November 2020 and the number of meals delivered has increased week on week. As well as supporting individuals and families with 6-12 weeks of meal support, we are also providing meals to local homeless organisations and hostels. We are cooking and delivering over 100 meals each week, through a team of 40 volunteers.
