The Lunch Break Fellowship creates an informal platform for busy working class people to experience the love of God and Christian fellowship during lunch break in designated centres across the nation. Here we stand with people for personal prayer needs and treat questions on faith and life issues. The fellowship is open to everyone. Highlights include lively music, talk, prayer, tea and coffee. There is no charge and no collections at this fellowship. We simply come together once a week for 30 minutes in the name of the Lord.
WHAT WE DO
THE HEART OF PRAYER
The Heart of Prayer meeting is a monthly outreach event hosted by The Compassion Centre in Dublin City Centre. It is a unique time of gathering to pray for families, nations and for other personal matters deserving of divine assistance.
Our desire through the Heart of Prayer meeting is to have hearts awakened to the love of Christ, to serve as a platform for Christian unity regardless of denomination, and to model biblical principles and Salvation in Christ Jesus.
The Heart of prayer is open to everyone; we always encourage people to come with expectation and faith in God who is able to do all things. THIS MEETING HAS NOW EVOLVED INTO HILLCITY CHURCH DUBLIN BASED IN BALLYMUN, DUBLIN 11, IRELAND.
Our Peg Project stands for “People Experiencing God’s love”, this is an ongoing ministry of the Compassion Centre. In the Bible we see Jesus meet the need of people spiritually, materially and emotionally time and time again and we are thoroughly convinced that the Lord wants us to do the same here in Dublin. We meet people daily who have very practical needs that can be met. From a coat of paint to mending garden walls, cleaning graffiti ridden community walls; we meet people where they are and show them the love of Christ through acts of love and service. This ministry is ongoing and we are always looking for skilled workers willing to volunteer their services. To get involved please contact us!
THE PEG PROJECT
DROP IN CENTRE
Our Drop in Centre is open Tuesdays through Thursdays. We make facilities available to those who are homeless, marginally homeless or sleeping rough. It serves as a place of safety and warmth where people are greeted by friendly faces and a cup of tea, coffee, biscuits and or sandwiches. Internet and phone facilities are available freely to users; volunteers are also on hand to help out. our aim in this project is to identify with those in needs, be a listening ear to their stories and provide help to the best of our ability. The Compassion Centre is in partnership with Betel, a Christian Rehab based in Shankill, County Wicklow, Ireland; we regularly encourage and facilitate people struggling with addiction to join their programme. Our drop in centre is open to anyone feeling lonely, isolated, alone or depressed. It includes counselling, talks, crime prevention or just simply drop in for tea or a chat.
Since May 2013 till date the Compassion Centre was approved to minister Christ and touch lives in Wheatfield prison, Clondalkin, Dublin 12, Ireland. Although the approval permits us to do this every Sunday, presently due to manpower shortage we are only able to minister in the prison, once a month (last Sunday of the month). There are amazing testimonies already and we are in talk with the prison authority to receive prisoners to the Compassion Centre as they are released from prison. This will enable us provide assistance towards integrating back to regular life outside prison, and to help with their accommodation needs and mentoring so they won't return back to prison.
SOUP KITCHEN &
"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, 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." Matthew 25:35-36. We run soup kitchen and compassion closet two days a week in the evenings of Mondays and Thursdays from 5:00pm to 8:00pm where we serve hot meals and give out clothes, socks, gloves, hats, sleeping bags (subject to availability). We are privileged to have the services of a Chiropodist coming to treat feet, trim nails/corns, hard skin/callus, verrucaes and in-growing toe nails in our Middle Abbey Street location in Dublin 1. The supporting service of Chiropodist is once a month and is provided free of charge. Foot and ankle massages are part of the free services and treated with aromatherapy cream.
We give gospel presentations every week and our partners from Bethel Rehab are in attendance most times to take people in if they are ready to get clean. Due to growing demands, we are always in need of donations of food items and clothes for all ages and sizes. If you would like to donate please contact us and we can arrange pick up at your convenience.
