Together with many other churches in Colchester we take part in the Colchester soup run. The aim is to provide those who are homeless or lonely with some nourishment every day. We make and take soup, sandwiches and hot food and drinks with us and serve these in the town centre together with fruit, biscuits and cakes.
The soup run operates every day of the year 8.00-9.00pm from the precinct near St Nicholas Square. Two groups operate from our parish covering six 4th Wednesdays of the month, 5th Thursdays and Saturdays. Volunteers donate and prepare food and drink and come along to distribute the food on the night and to chat with the clients.
