Church in Leicester helps those in need this Christmas

By Vivek Julka

Christmas is normally a happy time for many people but for some it is not.

Unfortunately, some are sleeping rough in the harsh cold weather and do not have enough food to eat.

To try and combat this, Bishop Street Methodist Church in Leicester has teamed up with a local charity to help those in need this Christmas.

Holly, who works at the church, said: “We are partnering up with Zinthiya Trust charity to make food parcels to give to people who are in need this Christmas.

“They are a great charity and help with all sorts of problems such as domestic violence abuse, people who are in debt and now they are helping us make these food parcels for these unfortunate people.”

While also doing this, the Methodist church members are preparing for their Christmas events which will take place in the church.

They have a carol service as hymn singing is a big feature in Methodist churches, which is coming up tomorrow(SUN,DEC18) with anyone welcome. 

Also, on Christmas Day, they are hosting a morning service when again, anyone is welcome.

Try and come along as this community is very friendly.
