We firmly believe that one of the best ways of showing God's love for us, is to reflect that love openly with those around us.  We endeavour to do this through our ministries both in and around our immediate community of the Forest of Dean.


Sometimes a smile, a "Hello", or a chance for someone to talk with, is all that people require. Others need more.  We don't judge; we don't discriminate - we simply try to act as Jesus would.


Below are our regular community events that help us express Jesus love in real and practical ways.


Working in conjunction with the Trussell Trust, a foodbank operates out of the FCC hall twice a week to support people who go hungry for reasons ranging from redundancy to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income. The Foodbank provides a minimum of three days emergency food and support to people experiencing a time of crisis.


If you find yourself in a time of crisis and in need of help you are not alone and we have people who are available to help you.


Opening times:

Tuesday 10 am - 12 noon

Friday 9.30 - 11.30 am


Emergency contact:  Chris Hedges 07775 265263 or
