Partnership with Neighbouring Churches
We are delighted to join in partnership with local congregations at different points throughout the year.
More recently, we have joined with our neighbouring Presbyterian churches, Seaview and Newington, for our evening services during the Christmas and Easter season. We are also involved in the Community Carol Service involving other local congregations of different denominations.
Each month, a community prayer meeting is held, with each church taking it in turns to host the prayer meeting. This is a great opportunity to pray for and encourage each other, as well as pray for the needs of our community.
The Wee Café
The Wee Café, our weekly drop-in café in Alexandra, runs each Wednesday from 10am to 12 noon and is completely FREE of charge. We’ll have tea, coffee, scones, buns, a kids’ corner and a free lending library of Christian books.
We want to use this as a time where we can make connections and build relationships with people from the community, who we don’t or won’t currently see in Alexandra. Please keep passing on the news to anyone who you think might benefit from coming along, whether a neighbour glad of the company, a parent or grandparent with toddlers, they will me made really welcome.
North Belfast Foodbank
As a congregation, we support the work of the North Belfast Foodbank, with food collections taken on the last Sunday of each month. Announcements will be made to remind the congregation, or if the collection week changes. Any non-perishable food items can be brought and left on the table at the front of the church.
Free Food Friday
Each Friday morning you will find the Free Food Friday table outside our church building on Castleton Avenue.
This arrives each Friday at 9.15am and is run in conjunction with Fare Share, the food waste charity. We link up with Tesco to provide food which has just gone past its sell-by date, instead of throwing it away we put it on the table and it is free to anyone who can make use of it.
You’ll find a mix of bakery, fruit and vegetable items
Time 4 U
