We support the New Zion Christian Fellowship Foodbank, who are partnered with Foodbank, an organisation dedicated to serving those in need in the local community. Each week around 40-50 people who have been given food vouchers by their care professional are provided with a free emergency food parcel to help them, whilst in difficult circumstances.
This is an excellent opportunity for us as a church to meet the needs of our community and beyond. Just adding one extra item to our shopping each week could make such a real difference to a family in need.
We have a basket in the Café for all donations, so please help support this worthwhile cause by donating food items.
“…for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’ “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’” – Matthew 25:35 – 40
