The Bread Church (also known as Somewhere Else) is an inclusive community that meets around the making and sharing of bread. We offer a warm welcome, hospitality and friendship to those of all faiths and none.
We are open twice weekly, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 10.30 - 2.00 to make bread by hand, with individuals and community groups of all ages and abilities. The sessions include time for:
Anyone wishing to make bread is asked to arrive by 11a.m. To share in other parts of the fellowship - coffee, conversation, Reflections and lunch - people arrive at any time from mid-morning onwards.
The activity is usually led by our resident Minister, the Revd Ian Hu, and facilitated by a team of volunteers who help with hospitality, and guide visitors through the steps in bread-making.
- that the church is not a building, but a fellowship of people who serve others in the name of Jesus
- that faith is more than religion
- that God's love is greater than anything we can imagine and embraces everyone who wants to be loved.
- that whatever your current experience of church is, The Bread Church will enhance it.
Established in 1999, The Bread Church is a joyful, happy and welcoming place. More than 11,000 people have met with us in the last 5 years alone. These have been Merseysiders who come regularly, or visitors from national, or international destinations. They came as individuals, or with school parties and youth groups, or through higher education.
They included families and single folk, the young seeking employment experience, retired people, those with physical and learning disabilities with support workers, people with mental health problems or on rehabilitation programs, the homeless and asylum seekers, and some who are not strangers to abuse due to gender or other issues.
