We run "Yardley Wood Pantry", a community food store run by volunteers for the benefit of local people.

Pantry is open on Wednesdays from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm and Fridays from 10:00 am -12:00 noon.

 Pantry operates as a membership scheme and aims to help people make their money go further by:

  • reducing food shopping bills (members can save over £500 each year)
  • providing advice and support
  • developing skills

Membership of Yardley Wood Pantry is for local individuals and families that find it hard to make ends meet each week.

For a membership fee of £5 a week, members can choose ten items from the ‘Pantry shop’, which would have a retail value of around £20. The Pantry shop stocks tinned and packet foods, refrigerated and frozen foods, fresh fruit and vegetables and many usual store favourites. It also stocks some household products such as toiletries and cleaning products.  

If you would like more details or to apply to become a member, please contact the church, email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call us on 0121 474 5184 


If you are able to donate, please bring items to church before 11:00 am on either Tuesday or Thursday mornings. Items we need are generally dried, tinned or other non perishables such as coffee, sugar, cereals. Tinned fish, meat, fruit, soup or vegetables. Cooking oil, basmati rice, dog & cat food and carrier bags.
