Food Cycle at Bow Road

The charity Food Cycle is running a project at Bow Road providing meals to needy people on a Friday evening, 7pm.  The charity currently operates in around 30 locations nationwide and sources food from supermarkets that is soon to reach its sell-by date. Volunteers cook and serve the food to those in need. 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

The congregation of the Redeemed Christian Church of God  meet in Bow Road church on Sunday evenings for a trial period. The RCCG churches in the UK are part of the huge Nigerian-based denomination which was founded in the early 1950s and has since spread to many parts of the world and continues to grow. It could fairly be described as a “fundamentalist” and  Pentecostal Church. For more

THE Tower Hamlets Methodist circuit is making a grant of £6,000 to the Bow Foodbank which is based in St Mary’s church, Bow. The application from the Foodbank, which is open every Monday, met the circuit’s funding criteria of “charities providing critical services to the people of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets” and comes at a time when need in the community is increasing as families go on to Universal Credit and have to cope with the gap between application and payment. The grant will be each year for three years. On average the Bow Foodbank supports about 140 clients each week and relies on financial and food donations to keep going. It is run by a remarkable coalition of local faith-based and community organisations and reaches those in need by direct access – not by referral.
