When we were faced with Covid in March 2020 and subsequently went into lockdown, we were already fully established to respond to the needs of those who were hit the hardest.
Full Covid secure procedures were implemented and we continued to successfully operate.
Foodshare is open every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 8pm.
We operate from the Lower Back Hall of the Church building. Access is from the side entrance, next to the Church carpark.
We have a dedicated team of helpers who collect and drop off food donated from local stores, help to serve our local community and to provide pastoral care and support.
We are currently looking for volunteers for the following roles:
We provide Pastoral care to our queuing customers at Foodshare. This involves talking and praying with the people, showing them the love of Jesus and giving compassion and support.
1 person is needed to help out on Tuesdays, 7.15pm-9pm
1 person is needed to help out on Saturdays, 7.15pm-9pm (preferably female)
We are looking for 2 people or a couple for Sundays, 7.15pm – 9pm
We have a team of drivers who help with collecting food from local stores and dropping the food off at the Church.
We need a driver to collect food from Theale at 8pm on Sundays
We need a driver to collect food at 8.30am on Tuesdays
We need 2 drivers to collect food at 8.30am on Thursdays
If you feel that God is calling you to join our group of volunteers, please get in touch.
