Millfield Drop In

"For I was hungry & you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty & you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger & you invited me in”
(Matt 25:35-36).

 

The Drop In is open on Mondays and Wednesdays from 2.30 – 4.30 p.m. and we serve between 15-40 men and women (mostly men) per session.  We have a fantastic team of volunteers who serve the poor, needy, socially excluded and homeless in our community, and they serve with love, kindness and compassion.

We serve soup, hotdogs, hot and cold drinks, cakes and biscuits and clients are given a pack of sandwiches when they leave.  We also supply a tin of food, toiletries, socks and clothes where there is a need if we are able to.

Many of our men and women have addiction problems, mental health issues or are living on the bread line, and a small minority are homeless.  Their lives are often lonely and chaotic, and we pray that when they come to the Drop In their hearts will be touched by God through us and that they find peace in their lives.

Since this ministry moved to Millfield in spring 2008, there is now at present, an increased need for something to eat, companionship with other people and clothes, for people that find themselves in various difficult times in their lives.

All food that is donated to us is used for sandwiches; food that cannot be used for sandwiches is given out to our clients.
