In line with Government advice, most groups and organisations in the city have had to take the unfortunate decision to suspend face to face and group work activities. Please telephone or email the contacts listed for the group or organisation if you are interested in their work to check what alternative arrangements might be available or to find out about alternative groups or services in your area.

Basics Bank at Bruntsfield is a ministry we run to try and help people in crisis in our city and local area. People are referred to us by various agencies and support teams and God gives us the glorious opportunity, to provide food for them, build relationships with them, share our lives and the gospel. It is a great privilege to be able to make the gospel tangible like this and it connects us with people we would never meet in a church service.

Basics Bank is run in partnership with Edinburgh City Mission, who help us with referrals and assist us on Friday mornings to make much of Jesus in this ministry. Other local churches serve us faithfully in providing supplies of tinned & dry food and toiletries. We are also supported by donations of fresh food through Cyrenians Fareshare and Tesco.

God has always been faithful since 2012 when we started in providing food for us to give out through the help of many kind individuals, churches and other institutions.

If you have questions about this ministry please email, or just pop in for a coffee with us any Friday between 10:00am and 1:00pm.
