We're delighted to be extending our reach by providing hot takeaway lunches on Chelsea's World's End Estate every Thursday. This is a collaboration with Venture Centre, which launched a food bank on the estate in January. The meals - which we cook at Chelsea Methodist Church and transport to World's End - were initially funded by an emergency Winter Food Grant from the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea (thank you!).
Restaurant chain Dishoom also generously donated 100 cooked meals three times per week until 6 May (thanks Dishoom!). We are now looking for new restaurant partners to offer this on rotation, to add to the takeaway lunches we cook for homeless and vulnerable adults to collect on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from the church.
CMC staff are on site Monday-Friday to respond to beneficiaries' urgent requests for clothing, food parcels, toiletries, post, advice and referrals, showers and laundry by appointment. The King's Road Community Drop-in space is reconfigured with Covid-safe screens to facilitate 1:1 support sessions with caseworkers from our charity partner Glass Door.
Increasing numbers of people urgently need our help during Covid-19. We're seeking funds, clothing and food to provide for them as we all recover from this crisis. We invite you to support us.

WE BELIEVE IN THE TRANSFORMATION OF LIVES THROUGH JESUS CHRIST
Unfortunately, all worship services, gatherings and activities here at Chelsea and Fulham Methodist Church are suspended until further notice, in line with Government Guidance. Visit our COVID Response page for updates.
As Christians we believe that God has called us to serve one another, just as Jesus gave up everything to serve us. A great way to get involved in church ministry is to join one of our teams where you will have the opportunity to use your gifts and talents, to make new friends and feel part of our transforming community.
