Do Drop In – Sheringham Methodist Church

'Do Drop In' community cafe opened in Sheringham Methodist Church in May 2016.  Those who attend enjoy a jacket potato with filling plus dessert and a 'joke of the week'.

Norfolk feeds 5000logo243'Do Drop In' community cafe opened in St Andrew's Methodist Church, Sheringham in May 2016 arising out of the vibrant 'Community Matters' cafe based at Cromer Methodist Church.

It meets every Wednesday. Tea and coffee is served from 11am followed by lunch at 12 noon offering jacket potatoes with salad and a choice of fillings plus a dessert.
Those who attend are a cross section of the community and they include lonely, vulnerable older folk. A warm welcome is given to friends from 'Independence Matters' - the Sheringham project for adults with learning difficulties.
There is no charge because they wish to reflect the generous love of God, although the optional donations mean it is self-funding.
Team Leader Barbara George said “We seek to express the love of God in action which is the basis for building a strong community. We have seen the growth of love and care for each other among the members which is an inspiration. Our weekly feature of 'joke of the week' draws us together with members sometimes contributing!”

About the project

Norfolk Feeds 5000 is a research project which aims to establish the extent to which the Christian community across Norfolk is meeting the simple command of Jesus to "feed the hungry".

Christian churches, groups and individuals across Norfolk meet the needs of the hungry and the thirsty every day of the year through foodbanks, free community meals, homeless projects, soup runs, Messy Church and other activities.
A simple survey has been conducted to attempt to quantify the extent to which this is happening and the findings of the survey will be published here, including many of the stories about the projects which feed people throughout Norfolk.
The project is supported by Celebrate Norfolk, Network Norfolk, Christian Aid, the Diocese of Norwich, Good News for Norwich & Norfolk and Bright Map and is named after the Bible story of the Feeding of The 5000.

If your Christian food-related project is not featured in our case studies and you would like us to include you, please send details, a fact file, a picture and web links to us by clicking here

The research and reporting team behind NorfolkFeeds5000 is from Network Norwich & Norfolk: Jenny Seal, Helen Baldry, Tony Rothe & Keith Morris.
