“He who is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward him for what he has done.” Proverbs 19:17

Food distribution

Throughout the year our church will be collecting non-perishable food items for a food distribution ministry in the Centocelle area of Rome. We are one of about 4 evangelical churches working together to help people in need during these difficult economic times.

If you want to make a donation, please bring your items and put them in the plastic bin at the back of the sanctuary. Items needed: pasta, tomato sauce, coffee, oil, tuna, sugar, canned vegetables, canned fruit, flour.

Thank you in advance for your generous assistance.
Pray for the food distribution and the refugee ministries in Rome.

The refugee reading room “Il Soggiorno”

So far (since opening in October), the largest number of refugees to come at one time was 17. Volunteers are still needed to help in a variety of ways.

Il Soggiorno The Refugee Reading Room

Imagine a place like your living room, where forcibly-displaced people are welcome to sit and enjoy a cup of tea, a hope-filled conversation and simple friendship with people who care. That is the dream of Il Soggiorno! Each week, 12-15 refugees from 6-8 countries stop for help with English or Italian language and are met with hot tea and warm smiles by volunteers like yourself.

Il Soggiorno is open Thursdays and Saturdays, 3:30-7:00 pm. You’re welcome to contact us (email at ilsoggiorno@gmail.com or Danielle.Kelly@iteams.org), to let us know in advance your interest and/or your visit. Il Soggiorno is located at Via IV Novembre 108 (near Piazza Venezia).
