The Bread of Life was established in June 1990 with a dream of reaching outside the church walls to those people in need in the local community.
At the Bread of Life Centre the Team has the opportunity to meet a variety of community needs on a daily basis. Please explore the services we offer.
EARTHQUAKE SUPPORT for those in the Seddon to Clarence area was initiated by us as of 1st April 2017 and we have a large number of clients who have been helped through our srevices there.
The OSCAR programmes allow parents to have peace of mind when they have to leave their children in our care whilst at work. We have 9 programmes running at present.
Our Community Support Workers work with clients, advocating and supporting where help is needed. This service has now been taken out to Seddon and Ward in the form of Earthquake Assistance.
Something Crafty, a great opportunity for people to have an enjoyable Friday morning of fun and fellowship. A gold coin donation is appreciated but not mandatory.
Our Depression Support Group meets on Wednesdays between 10.00- 12.30pm at the Centre. All welcome, no charge.
Sheets 'n Things , our pre-loved linen shop supplies good quality linen at a low price and has now moved into new premises at 2 Redwood Street.
GECKO JUNCTION, which is a Cafe/Craft Shop, is OPEN Monday to Saturdays, with its entrance in The Warehouse car park.
Due to the increasing pressure of finding funds we have had to think outside the box and we believe that this venture will go a long way to helping raise ongoing sustainable income. All profits raised go back into our community through the services we offer.
We offer top grade coffee and food, along with the opportunity to purchase local arts and crafts. Do come and join us! We also have a Kiddy enclosure for Mum's peace of mind.
Whilst you are there have a close look at the beautiful mural painted on the Car Park wall by the Boy's College Art students under the direction of Gynelle Blake. This is a great project that has involved many businesses such as Resene, Scaffold Marlborough, Marlborough District Council, The Warehouse, Gibbons Construction and Crafar Crouch. To them and the students, a big thanks!
We appreciate the wonderful, caring agencies, NGOs, businesses and individuals in our community that help "make it all happen" in one way or another for those who are in need. THANK YOU! Your support is greatly appreciated.
