Foodbank – We are a distribution centre for people with food bank vouchers from the Oasis Foodbank.   We are open during the community café every Thursday from 2.30pm to 4.30pm so drop in for a cup of coffee or tea as well.

We depend on donations in order to keep the Foodbank running. Food donations can be brought to the church. Please click here for an up to date Shopping list.

If you are interested in volunteering with the Foodbank, please call the church at 0207 357 7331 or email jane@stgeorge-themartyr.co.uk. We are looking for volunteers to help between 2-5pm on Thursdays. You can come to volunteer for an hour or stay the full three hours!

HOurBank and Community Café
‘Lovely coffee and cake. Very friendly. Good atmosphere.’
‘Lovely and friendly! Gave people a chance to meet and chat. People who might otherwise have been bored and lonely. This is worth it.’
‘Very good, very welcoming.’

These are just a few ways people have described our new Community Café. The Café is open from 2pm until 4pm every Thursday. It is a free café serving tea and coffee and other snacks and refreshments meeting in the church. It is primarily intended for people who live and work locally and especially for people who are particularly in need of company and support.

Upcoming talks:
23 March 2017 Heating or Eating by Andrea from the CABx this Thursday.

30 March 2017 Managing our Money by Naomi, supported by material from Kathy Crockford and referrals to CAP (Christians Against Poverty) next week.

The cafe is also an opportunity to learn more and sign up for timebanking through HOurBank.

How does HOurBank work?
Everyone has something that they can do well. The HOurBank is a way for people to share those skills with each other, while getting something back in return. This could be anything from shopping for a neighbour, mending a sock, or baking a cake.
For example: Bob tidies Ola’s garden, Ola teaches Min to play piano, Min mends Bob’s jacket.
