Immanuel Church hosts a monthly Carer’s Support Group and Friendship Club and an ‘AfterCare’ bereavement support group that meets monthly, is peer-led and is there for people after the loss of the person they cared for. Immanuel Church is also a help to their community as they host:

  • A Foodbank, which operates 3 times a week

  • Cycle Without Age.

The church has a welcoming café called ‘Jubilatte’ (which means Rejoice) and is open to the public Monday – Friday from 9:30 am-3 pm, serving light bites, and drinks.

The cafe is a great space for all community members to enjoy a healthy low-cost meal. The Café also offers a ‘Free Food Fridge’ and a variety of breads/pastries, collected from local supermarkets, which are free to take, as needed.
