Somewhere Else (also known as The Bread Church) 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 part of the Emmaus Circuit of Liverpool Methodist Church District. This is a brand new circuit of non-geographic missional communities, gathering together and supporting "non-traditional churches and groups." Follow the link to read about "same loaf, new wrapper" and what the circuit has been doing.
We are open twice weekly, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 10.30 am - 2.00 pm 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 team of volunteers who help with hospitality, and guide visitors through the steps in bread-making.
All our volunteers, known as facilitators, have undergone a 5 session training programme which includes food hygiene as well as safeguarding.

The Bread Church - Emmaus Methodist Church Community in Liverpool City Centre
Be thou my vision,
O Lord of my heart
Naught be all else to me
Save that thou art
Thou my best thought
By day or by night
Waking or sleeping,
Thy presence my light.

Praying the breakthrough prayer
A prayer for God to break through in the life of our churches:
God of love, God for all,
your purposes are more beautiful than we can possibly imagine.
Fill us with your Holy Spirit.
Help us let go of all that holds us back.
Open our lives and our churches to new seasons of humility and faith, of change and growth.
Shake us up with the Good News of Jesus and show us the way.
The Methodist Church in Britain's Prayer Handbook for 2023 - 2024's theme is Hidden Treasures:based on Isaiah 45:3, with further inspiration from Romans 8:22-29 and Psalm 139.
We talk easily about ‘the light of Christ’, yet truly God is at work in the darkness, and in the most difficult of times. It can feel challenging to follow God when the way ahead seems less clear. But we believe that God’s hidden treasures are present, often in the most unexpected places and unexpected people. While the prevailing narrative is decline, there is hidden potential for new growth in the Church and continuing to see God at work, even in the most marginalised of communities.

Take time out to pause and take inspiration from our Positive Thoughts page.
Listen to a song, read a poem, psalm or passage from the Bible.
If you have any inspirational passages or songs that you think others would enjoy, then please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Psalm of the week - 145
