Bread Church is a new venture, in York, drawing on similar Fresh Expressions elsewhere in Methodism, but perfectly situated, due to its being situated in the same premises, as Carecent. Its led by Deacon Judith Stoddart and other volunteers.
Carecent is a breakfast centre for all homeless, unemployed or otherwise socially excluded members of our community. They provide food, clothing and fellowship in a friendly and non-judgemental environment. Their volunteer staff are always ready to listen and offer support and advice where possible. Where appropriate, we work with other agencies in order to move people forward to an improved lifestyle.
Bread Church, expands this provision, it’s Church but not as you might imagine it to be – there’s no apparently random sitting/standing/kneeling or singing strange songs! We simply chat and bake and eat, with the opportunity to talk about God if you want to. Everyone is welcome.
Please spread the word!
