Storehouse

An opportunity to give and receive.  

‘Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act.’

Proverbs 3:27 (NIV)

What is Storehouse?

St Jude’s would like to introduce the ministry of Storehouse into the life of our church. Storehouse exists to help those who may have a shortage of food or essential household items. Through our own contacts and through links with local agencies we will have the opportunity to bless others and share God’s love and provision with people who find themselves in a place of real need.

Once a month we plan to hold ‘Storehouse Sunday’ when we can bring groceries or cash to donate to the Storehouse ministry. When we have built up a good source we will then be able to supply food parcels to those who need them, both from our own congregation, and to those in the local community as we become aware of their needs.

There is only one guideline that we would ask you to respect:

Please donate only the same quality goods that you would be happy to eat or use yourself.

It is hoped that we can build this outreach ministry to include Starter Packs for families and individuals who for whatever reason find themselves having to begin again.

Thank you to all who have given to STOREHOUSE, your generosity is very much appreciated.
