The Liverpool North Central Circuit aims to be a good neighbour to people in need and to challenge injustice.  We have various activities within our circuit which seeks to do this:

 

Afternoon Tea

Afternoon tea is for people in the community who may be on their own or who just want to have a little company with the opportunity to have a chat and enjoy some tasty food.

Coming soon  at Oakfield Methodist Church

It will be held in the small hall, entrance through the double glazed doors between the two main buildings.

 

Community Lunch

Once a week the circuit serves lunch to those in need.

Foodbank

All of our churches are collection points for foodbank donations.  County Methodist is also a distribution point.

County Foodbank is open on Tuesdays between 9:30am and 11am.

***Important – Foodbank works using a voucher referral system. In order to get help from our foodbank, you will need a voucher issued by local agencies. Unfortunately Foodbank cannot issue food parcels without the voucher.***

About County Foodbank

County Foodbank are part of the North Liverpool Foodbank and is run by volunteers from across the local churches and community.

Every day people in the UK go hungry for various reasons ranging from redundancy to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income. We provide food parcels containing three days’ nutritionally balanced, non-perishable food in exchange for a food voucher.  Foodbank vouchers are issued by professionals such as doctors, health visitors, schools and social workers.  If you are unsure of how to access foodbank vouchers, please phone North Liverpool Foodbank on 0151 226 3406 or 0151 270 1224 who will direct you to the most appropriate agency to give you a voucher.

Foodbank at County offers a lot more than food.  Volunteers will offer you a warm drink, a listening ear and can signpost you to other charities and agencies who can help resolve the underlying cause of the crisis.

If you require food outside of these times, please click on the following link: foodbank locations and opening times (a new tab will open).

Tai Chi

Tai Chi runs on a Tuesday between 10 – 11am and is open to the local community free of charge (a suggested donation of £1 is welcome but not compulsory).

Tai Chi is gentle exercise suitable for all ages.  There are many benefits of Tai Chi, especially for older people: it is good for muscles and joints, improves balance and provides stress relief.  Tai Chi is accompanied by calming and uplifting music.

We occasionally use the garden (weather permitting) and at the end of the hour, those who wish, can stay for refreshments and a chat.

You can be assured of a warm welcome.
