About The House Of Bread.
House of Bread (HOB) is an organisation that supports vulnerable and homeless people in Stafford and the surrounding area. Throughout the week we hold activities and drop-in sessions providing food, friendship, support and advice available to anyone who comes along and who we like to call our Friends.
Ask any of our visitors and they will tell you, it isn't a house that makes a home; it's the family inside it.
House of Bread is like a real home; we eat together, laugh together, cry together, share success and support each other in times of crisis.
DONATIONS FOR HOUSE OF BREAD
We will be collecting donations at our Team Services in aid of the Christian charity House of Bread. Their Food Bank supplies not just food items but also toiletries to support vulnerable families in the Stafford area.
We welcome contributions of any non-perishable food items but especially biscuits, tinned fruit, pasta and rice
And any toiletries, but especially items essential for health and wellbeing such as body spray, toothbrushes, soap, shampoo + conditioner and flannels.
If anyone would like to make a donation but is not able to bring it to the Team Service I am happy to collect.
Thank you for supporting the work of this Charity.

WORLD DAY OF PRAYER
More than 30 people attended our Team service for World Day of Prayer held on Friday 1 March at All Saints' Sandon. The service, written by women in Slovenia, was both thought provoking and entertaining. It was on a theme of Come - the Feast is Ready! Our participants were seated around a table laid for a meal. Members of the congregation were each given a paper carnation to take home and we even had a flock of Slovenian sheep displayed on the lady altar! After the service, people enjoyed home-made Slovenian Honey biscuits with their coffee.
Thank you to everyone who came along and to those who contributed to making the evening such a success.

'This is a course that helps people to articulate their fears in a way that might deepen their faith and their attitudes to the world around them. It is designed to help people dare to see God in their own lives and those around them…..There are good questions to be asked - Do you feel loved by God? Does Jesus always deliver what you expect? And more. '(Review in RCA by Revd Christopher Wardale, Winter 2018)
