Over the New Year period we have partnered with Love your Neighbour and Sainsbury’s East Filton to provide food bags to a number of people across our parish.
Love Christmas is a campaign from Love your Neighbour in which a growing alliance of thousands of churches across the UK came together to spread a powerful message of love, hope and kindness to people who are struggling this winter.
Love Christmas, through the Church Revitalisation Trust (CRT) awarded us a grant of £500 to help deliver hope and love through food deliveries.
We contacted Sainsbury’s at East Filton who were happy to donate grocery bags and also add an extra £200.
We also partnered with local schools to ensure the food bags reached those who really needed it.
