The Care Centre at the Vineyard Church is a ministry to help those in our community who are in need. It includes Feed
, an emergency food bank; Kit
, which provides children's clothing and equipment; Refuel
, a lunch provision in the school holidays; and Bridge
, a mentoring scheme to help people in various areas of their lives such as budgeting, applying for jobs and pastoral needs.
Its importance has been highlighted by many attendees sharing amazing stories of how the project has blessed them and had a life-transforming impact.
Several schools have organised whole-school collections through Step to support this amazing place. We offer an assembly to each year group to launch the collection and then assist with the practicalities of storage/transportation of items. We have also arranged for students to visit the Care Centre and see the impact first hand.
