We want to follow Jesus’ example in everything we do and part of that means having an impact on the local community – trying to help meet people’s needs in many different ways.
Times: 11am to 1pm, Monday to Friday
The Hub opens its doors every weekday with the smell of freshly filtered coffee and a warm welcome from the team – pop in for a friendly chat and make new friends over a cuppa, or if you’d prefer to sit and reflect quietly – that’s fine – it would be great to see you!
There’ll always be someone ready to lend a listening ear and if you need some practical support we’ll point you to those qualified to help. Our pastor and team of volunteers are always available to help you on your journey with God.
There is a way out of debt; there is hope. Each year Christians Against Poverty (CAP) helps 20,000 people find their way out of the black hole of debt. They work out fair budgets, negotiate with creditors and can take people through insolvency procedures, so there is always an answer. HRBC runs CAP Money Courses, which teach people to budget, save and prevent debt.

NO MONEY FOR FOOD? FOODBANK CAN HELP!
Foodbank is designed to help individuals and families in crisis, through the provision of emergency food supplies. Local professional care-workers in North Down refer them, with a food voucher, to a local Distribution Centre where they are given enough food for three days and help in finding other professionals who can help them out of their crisis. This is a short term measure allowing breathing space at times of great need.
For advice, call Bangor Foodbank on 07849239143.
Want to donate? We make Foodbank collections at HRBC on various days throughout the year (sorry – we don’t have the space to take collections at other times), or you can take items up to the main Bangor depot at the Elim church when it’s open.
