Grocer with a Heart

5 November, 2020

Our Brighton Church has discovered it's not only possible to maintain a strong and effective witness during this Covid season, but it's also an opportunity to actually commence one of the most important ministries in the Church's history!

Grocer with a Heart is a ministry initiative, born out of the vision of two members of the Brighton Fellowship. It involves the distribution of fruit, vegetables and grocery items which might otherwise be discarded, but which Brighton is now making available to the people of its community free of charge or at bare minimal cost. The shop, located at the rear of the Brighton complex, has been operating since the beginning of the Pandemic and its impact on both the Church and the surrounding area has been nothing short of incredible!

The acquisition of a refrigerated van and the installation of a freezer room and cooler room now make it possible for the shop to offer a wide range of frozen goods.

Grocer with a Heart opening hours are:

Tuesday to Friday - 10:30am to 3:00pm

Saturday - 10:00am to 12:30pm

Brighton Church of Christ is at 65 Sturt Road Brighton.
