For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.' "Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?' "The King will reply, 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me'." Matthew 25: 35-40

WELCOME

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 has been initiated by us as of 1st April and already we have a large number of clients who are being 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.

Your Choices Programme which runs for 14 weeks. It is a comprehensive programme for those who have experienced physical, emotional, sexual trauma, family dysfunction and other major life issues. 

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. 

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 Weekly Connections (church with a difference) meetings will re-start soon.

Our Depression Support Group meets on Wednesdays between 10.00- 12.30pm at the Centre. All welcome, no charge.

Our new venture, GECKO JUNCTION, which is a Cafe/Craft Shop, is now OPEN, 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.

THEMED DINNERS! We are holding our first Themed Dinner, A NIGHT IN INDIA, on the 26 August. Roger Raizada, well-known Restauranteur and Chef will give a cooking demonstration and talk on healthy eating. Thank you Roger for all your help and donations.

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!
