Next meeting of Ethnos at Bow Rd


 Evangelism outreach for the Tower Hamlets Community 


There are a number of people who could share the good news of Jesus with others, yet for some reason think they’re not qualified or good enough, whilst others try to find an opportunity, but have not found one yet.  If this speaks to you, here is an opportunity to leave your comfort zone and join our Team, ‘ETHNOS’ (People of God, All nations).  We ran two sessions; What is Evangelism?’ (May 5th)  and ‘How to do Evangelism’ (12th May) followed by practical outreach on the street, in front of Bow Road Methodist Church; Wednesdays from 11.30-1.30pm once a month; 16th June, 14th July.

For further information, please contact Lucia Banks 07545 135465,

Food Cycle at Bow Road
During the Crisis, Food Cycle has been delivering meals to clients on a Friday evening.
Since end of October 2020, there has been meal distribution from the Church Doors from 7 - 8 pm

The charity Food Cycle runs a project at Bow Road providing meals to needy people on a Friday evening, 7pm.  The charity operates in around 30 locations nationwide and sources food from supermarkets that is soon to reach its sell-by date. The aim is to provide a tasty meal for people who struggle to afford the basics to eat and who will eat alone without company or conversation. The project relies on a team of very committed volunteers offering their time to support people living in the local community.  If you want to know more, visit the website ( contact Matt ( or 020 7729 2775
