Why is the church doing this

We care passionately about God’s world and are motivated by our faith to run this project. 


Matthew 25:35-40 New International Version (NIV)

35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in,36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

POP IN TO OUR CLOTHES SWAP

CLOTHES SWAP

  • The Clothing Swap Shop is now officially open in Granton Parish Church hall. There are three rails of clothing – one for women’s clothing, one for men’s and one for children’s with baby clothes on a table. The swap shop will be open all the time but will be staffed at the following times: Wednesdays 3-4.30pm, Thursdays 4.30-6pm, Fridays 12-1pm

RESCUE BREAD

  • Additionally on Fridays we have bread and other goodies from local bakeries available.

ALL FREE OF CHARGE!

  • This project is about reducing waste - so there is no charge for any of our services. You don't even need to swap clothes - if you see something you like, just weigh it and take it!
