Last Saturday saw the joint ecumenical launch of two new food pantries in two Leicester city churches, one Anglican and one operated by a Moravian congregation in a Methodist church hall. Archdeacon Richard and Moravian Bishop Joachim visited both food pantries, at All Saints Belgrave and Wesley Hall Methodist church, and prayed for the two projects as they opened their doors for the first time.
