We aim to reflect God’s heart for the poor and needy in all we do. We aim to bring the hope of Jesus Christ to the people of our city through practical expressions of His love.
Today in the City of Wolverhampton there are families and single people struggling to buy food and other essentials.
For people on low incomes, a sudden crisis can mean going hungry.
What would YOU do if you…
Were made redundant and couldn’t find work?
Had to flee your home due to domestic violence?
Had difficulty filling in forms so your benefit claim was delayed?
Received an unexpected bill and had no savings?
Had no family/support network to help you in financial difficulties?
The Well is here to support local people in these and similar crisis, by providing emergency food,
inc. baby food, as well as adult and baby toiletries.
‘You shall not harden your heart nor shut your hand from your poor brother…You shall surely give to him, and your heart should not be grieved when you give to him, because for this thing the LORD your God will bless you in all your works and in all to which you put your hand…You shall open your hand wide to your brother, to your poor and your needy, in your land’.
— Deuteronomy 15
These are the core beliefs that have become the foundation of The Well:
Each person is created uniquely, and has a purpose, so we support people of all faiths and none
Working in partnership is good, so we have built relationships with Agencies, Churches, other food – related support projects, and the wider local community
Prayer is a priority, as it is the best way to keep the foundation strong
We depend on God to provide all we need, through whomever He prompts to give
As we serve the community we are serving Jesus
