  The Bassetlaw Food Bank does not receive any formal funding, they rely completely on grant applications, donations from organisations, churches, the general public and fundraising to be able to provide support to the local people of Worksop, Retford and surrounding villages.

  This time of year is not good for some people in our local community, not only following the expense of Christmas but also with high energy bills during the winter months.  On top of this we have the uncertainty caused by the roll out across the district of the new Universal Credit Full Service.

  The process of applying for this benefit impacts on many people, including not only the unemployed and sick, but working people and their families. We currently have no idea what impact this is going to have on the demand for the Food Bank during the coming year, but early signs are not good and donations will help us to be prepared for any continuing rise that may occur.

  Bassetlaw Food Bank are proud to be supported by a team of over 90 volunteers; without their support they would not be in a position to offer their services five days a week.  Their expansion signifies that there has been a continued demand for their services across the Bassetlaw District, which will not be sustained without support

What is Real LIFE?

Real LIFE is a discipleship course designed to envision, empower and equip Godís people in making the life-long journey of following-after Christ.  The course is made-up of three ten-week blocks (Life CORE, Life CREDO and Life STORY), which in their own different ways will look at ten aspects of discipleship that emerge from the teaching and example of Jesus in Luke 9.  Life CORE introduces these aspects; Life CREDO considers the bigger theological themes that lie behind them; and Life STORY asks how each aspect of discipleship is developed in everyday experience. 

To hear more about Real LIFE, watch these short videos.
