In 2013, we opened a distribution centre for Stockport foodbank.
On Mondays and Thursdays (except BHs) - from 1pm to 3pm - we open at St Martin's, 112 Crescent Park, Stockport, SK4 2JE, for referred clients.
Foodbank clients bring their voucher to a foodbank centre where it can be redeemed for three days emergency food. Trained volunteers meet them over a cup of tea or coffee and are able to signpost them to agencies able to solve any longer-term problems.
Street Pastors offer help and support to late-nighters in Stockport on Saturday nights (approx 11pm-3am). In small teams of people from local churches, we seek to offer practical assistance around our town with a gracious smile!
Over the coming months there are a number of training days, opportunities to pray, and to shadow a team one night.
