Deaconship

Bread Giving

There has been arranged loaf delivery for persons in need, i.e.
unemployed, disadvantaged and retirees in our church for years. Loaf
is distributed in church facility (Valtuustonkatu 5) on Tuesdays at
11:30 a.m. There are approximately 60-100 persons who pick up loaf
every Tuesday. There are about 80-120 boxes of fresh loaf available
per day. Loafs are distributed in a way that each retriever has the
needed amount.

In the beginning of each loaf distribution, there is arranged a
devotional gathering of half an hour beginning at 11 a.m. Many people
come to sing together and listen to Gospel message. You are warmly
welcome to these gatherings.
