North Bristol Foodbank

St Michaels Church now has a link with North Bristol Foodbank. We hope to help to alleviate the pain and suffering some people in our area are feeling due to circumstances beyond their means. There is now a fixed donation point in the foyer of the Old School Rooms where you can put food donations for the North Bristol Foodbank. 

The North Bristol foodbank, as part of the UK-wide Trussell Trust Foodbank network, provides a minimum of three days emergency food and support to people experiencing crisis. In Bristol, there are three Trussell Trust foodbanks and a number of independent foodbanks.

And more information can be found on their website 

You can also talk with Sid Cameron, who is our champion for North Bristol Foodbank at St Michaels Church.

Coffee Shop Volunteering Opportunities

The Old School Rooms Coffee Shop is an important part of the work of St Michael’s Church, and has a fantastic group of volunteers working in it. To continue to serve the community we need at least 20 volunteers a week, every week. Most volunteers work a 4 hour shift once a week (or once a month if working on Saturday). This is a great way to get to know people in the church and the local community.

Is this something you feel you would like to be part of?  If so, please do get in touch. Email coffeeshop@stmichaelsbristol.org or why not have a chat with Ann Cooke, Coffee Shop Manager, when you next drop in for Coffee?

 




Are you a first aider?

As a growing church it is increasingly important that we have first aiders on stand-by at our meetings and services.

If you have a first aid certificate and you’re happy to be on a list of people available to give first aid, then please contact Lucy Grier with details of your qualification. 

We hope we won’t ever need to make use of your skills – but we want to take very good care of everyone we welcome here at St Michael’s.
