Compassion Projects

Compassion Projects

We want to show Gods love and compassion through caring for those in need. In Matthew 25:24-46, Jesus encourages us to feed those who are hungry and give drinks to those who are thirsty, telling us that whenever we are  doing this, we are doing it for Him. Why not get involved in one of of our Compassion Projects?

Community Cafe and Food Bank Distribution Centre

On Friday mornings, 10am – 12noon we run a Distribution Centre for Norwich Food Bank at The Vineyard Centre on Nelson Street. People who have been given a Food Bank Voucher from a support agency can come and collect Food Boxes.

Foodbank Vouchers are not able to be issued on a Friday morning at Gateway Vineyard. For a list of agencies who provide Foodbank Vouchers please click here

We are also open as a cafe for members of the local community serving coffee, tea, cooked breakfast and cake for a donation of 50p.

If you would like to give to the Food Bank please bring quality non-perishable food and toiletries with you to our Sunday Service and put it in the Food Bank Basket on the Information Table. There are lists of suggested items available there.

For more information or to volunteer please email Jo on
