Impacting our community with God's love
The Oak Community Church opened a Foodbank with Trussell Trust in 2010. By 2016 the number of Foodbank outlets across Bromley Borough had grown so much we established Bromley Borough Foodbank as it's own independent charity. You can find their webpage here: Bromley Borough Foodbank
We have recently commissioned a Portakabin on our site so that we can host a Foodbank outlet at our site 3 days per week.
Since then the Foodbank has grown from being Orpington Foodbank open in one venue in Orpington to Bromley Borough Foodbank open in 5 different distribution centres across the borough. The Foodbank remains a significant part of Oak’s ministry although now this is an independent charity with support of other local churches.
