Helping Hands is a way in which we help those in need across our local community. We distribute food and toiletries parcels to people all over the Midlands, looking after over 1000 families a year.
This is a simple yet powerful ministry. Helping Hands exists purely through the generous donations of food and toiletries from Renewal Partners as well as from other churches, schools and organisations in the area. There is a drop off location in the foyer at Renewal Solihull, or you can bring your donations to reception during office hours throughout the week. Pick up a shopping list from the Info Point to help you select items on your weekly shop to donate.

Summer Shopping List
Thank you for your generous donations which are so gratefully received by many families within our community. During the summer school holiday period there is a significant increase in the number of families requiring food from Helping Hands. This summer we are particularly in need of these items:
- Baked beans
- Tinned spaghetti
- Tinned stews
- Tinned pies
- Tinned tuna & sardines
- Tinned vegetables
- Tinned fruit & puddings
- Shower gel for men & women
You can also pickup a shopping list at our Info Point.
During the winter, requests for food parcels generally increase due to higher heating bills and other seasonal costs.
Stay tuned to find out when our next Harvest Offering will be.
