Social Action

Thirteen million people live below the poverty line in the UK, with individuals going hungry every day for a range of reasons, from benefit delays to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income.

We as a Foodbank centre, here at MCC, provide a minimum of 3 days emergency food to people experiencing crisis in the Middlesbrough area.

Our involvement in Foodbank is also about providing prayer and encouragement, and we are seeing this area of the work develop.

In 2015/16 we helped around 30 people each week.

We have a great team at MCC who share in the same vision to help people in need. If you would like to volunteer please contact:

For over 20 years MCC has organised and hosted a Christmas dinner on Christmas day with around 70-100 guests and volunteers. Over the years we have welcomed hundreds of people to enjoy Christmas day with us with great food, entertainment and fun.

On Christmas eve and Christmas day we need around 30-40 volunteers to pull it all together and we have been blessed to have many people give up their time to serve others at this special time of year.
