A significantly higher proportion of people than average live below the poverty line in South-West Belfast.
South-West Belfast foodbank (serving from the Colin Neighbourhood and Dunmurry village to Andersonstown) gives hope and practical help to people in crisis.
As well as being given food, clients are signposted to other organisations which could help, as well as offered prayer and spiritual support.
All of our food is generously donated by people in the local community (at supermarkets, schools, churches, etc.) and volunteers sort, pack, and distribute food parcels to individuals and families in need.
The families and individuals who come to us have been referred by care professionals as needing short-term crisis food support.
As well as food donations, we also need financial support to meet the costs of running the foodbank. While we have some regular donors and fundraisers, we are in need of further funds to cover costs and expand the work of the foodbank.
Colin Glen Christian Fellowship is based within the Colin Glen and Andersonstown areas of West Belfast. As a non-denominational, Bible-based, fellowship, we are located within, and work mainly amongst, the Nationalist (Catholic) community. Yet, we have people from both main communities attend, since our focus is on worshipping and serving God, not culture.
Our vision is: “To help establish evangelicalism as an integral and vibrant part of the Nationalist community’s culture and faith in West Belfast, through church planting as Colin Glen Christian Fellowship.”
More than just church-planting and evangelism, it is mission in a local context.
We minister within the local community through Sunday worship services, midweek fellowship (discipleship) groups, pastoral ministry, evangelism, foodbank, and evangelical cross-community awareness and fellowship.
We greatly value your support, in encouragement, finance and prayer.
