Christmas Gifts in the Community

We'd like to make 100 gift bags and boxes for visitors to Hope Café

They’re living in very difficult circumstances, and we want to be a real blessing to them and to invite them to connect with our church community.

We're collecting boxes for men who come to Hope Café.

We'd also like to give them out at a hotel for asylum seekers very near 2 Blackburne Place.

What shall I put in?

Please include something from each of these groups in a wrapped shoebox or gift bag:


e.g Shampoo, facecloth, soap, toothbrush & paste, comb.

Roll on deodorant & moisturiser (have been requested )


e.g hat, scarf, gloves, cap


 e.g Notebook, pens


E.g Halal friendly sweets (vegetarian are always Halal)

Handwritten Card/ note.

(But no personal details).


  • Anything war, fighting related or depicting any violence - eg knives, toy guns, notebooks with skulls/ explosions/ violent movie themes.
  • Second hand items.
  • Fragile or sharp objects
  • Whilst kind, please do not just give us a box of shampoos or other fillers.

When can I drop off?

Sunday morning services on 26th Nov, 3rd DEC and 10th DEC.

PLEASE drop off the boxes ready to give but unsealed

If you have any questions, Lindsay would love to hear from you.
