Great Yarmouth Foodbank at Gorleston Baptist Church have been providing packed lunch bags for families who attend the Foodbank with children during the school holidays

The Foodbank is always in need of support and donations - the items they need are listed on their website

RESTORED 1          RESTORED 2

 

 

Restored has produced a pack to enable churches
to tackle the issue of domestic abuse more effectively 

The Right Reverend Rachel Treweek, Bishop of Gloucester writes this about it

“Love and Relationship is at the heart of who God is. Joining in with God’s work of transformation and hope begins by recognising the brokenness in us and around us. This pack is an excellent resource to enable followers of Christ to have their eyes and ears opened to the issue of abuse against women and have the courage to take action for the flourishing of those in our churches, chaplaincies and schools, and in the wider community. To close our eyes to the issue of domestic violence is to prefer the darkness to the light”
