Church-based Groups

There are a number of different groups based in the Church, details of which and links about the groups can be seen below.

North Bristol Foodbank

We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we support our local food bank to help supply emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. North Bristol Foodbank is part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.

If you, or anyone you know of, is going hungry, please contact our minister in confidence who will be able to help.

Bristol Churches’ Winter Night Shelter

Bristol Churches Winter Night Shelter (BCWNS) is a partnership of churches providing shelter to an agreed number of guests per night. Our guests are people who would otherwise be sleeping rough and are referred to the scheme by St Mungo’s charity.

During January, February and March, we support this scheme along with sister churches across the city, each venue offering shelter one night per week. Whilst we are organised through a partnership of churches our volunteers don’t have to be church goers and so we welcome volunteers whether they are drawn from church communities or the wider local community.

If you are concerned about someone sleeping rough, please visit the StreetLink website  or download their app from iTunes or the Play store.  Alerting local services to people who are sleeping rough could save lives.  If the situation is an emergency, please don’t hesitate – call 999 for an ambulance or the police.
