Food Bank Volunteers

The church's Foodbank is grateful for your continued support, is running low on some items and will welcome more volunteers to help the most vulnerable.

We are currently running low on stock, especially jars of pasta sauce. Your donations continue to be much appreciated.

On volunteering, can you give an hour and a half of time on a Monday evening to support some of the most vulnerable in our community? We need people to:

  • sit with our guests, chat, make them feel at ease and provide a listening, compassionate pair of ears
  • make and serve tea and coffee
  • collect unsold food from Greggs and Esquires (and soon, Wenzels) for sharing with our guests
  • give out food parcels

We believe the need is significant and growing, and that it is the work of God's people to meet the needs of those who are most vulnerable in our community: Remember what Jesus said to those who do such things?
'Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me. .... whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.'

We want Aylesbury Methodist Church to be a place full of people like this, serving and blessing the people of Aylesbury in the name of the God who has blessed us.

If you can help in any way, please get in touch with Richard, Kevin or Karen for further information.
