Community Action

“If you spend yourselves on behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed,

Then your light will rise in the darkness…. ”

Isaiah 58:10

Vinny’s Diner

Vinny’s is a place where everyone is welcome for a free hot lunch, pudding and lashings of tea and coffee served by our fabulous team of volunteers. We are open to the homeless and the housed, the rich and the poor, the young and the old. Everyone will experience a friendly welcome, good company and a nourishing meal with a word of encouragement shared from the front. 

If any guest would like prayer for any situation they may be experiencing one of our team would be happy to pray with them in confidence.

We also offer free food parcels from our Bright City Food Bank for anyone in need.

Vinny’s is open every Monday from 11:30am to 12:30pm (Bank Holidays may vary).

If you would like more information or would be interested in volunteering please contact the church office (see our ‘Contact’ page).


We are so thankful for our Bright City Food Bank which is only made possible through the generous donations from members of our community, from FareShare Ashford, our local schools (many of whom donate the proceeds of their harvest festivals to our project)  and from local food businesses. 

The food bank is run by our volunteers who tirelessly ensure that our stocks are regularly topped up, stored safely and are distributed to those in need. 

Bright City Food Bank is open every Monday and Friday from 10am -12:30pm. If you would like more information on accessing the food bank or want to know about volunteering then email us at
