Loaves & Fishes RI
This amazing nation-wide ministry started in 1998 in Austin, Texas. St. John’s was part of the beginnings of this ministry in Providence and here on the East Bay. Together with four other area churches, members of St. John’s help prepare food, organize clothing, and accompany the loaded lunch truck to areas where homeless folks congregate as well as low-income housing projects in Rhode Island. One of the joys of going out on a Loaves and Fishes RI trip, is the close personal interaction with those who are being helped. Recognition of our brothers and sisters in Christ is a powerful thing. Everyone is invited to take part.
John's Mobile Meals
This wonderfully organized group prepares and delivers meals on Saturdays to folks in Barrington and Riverside who are unable to venture from their homes for whatever reason. St. John’s shares this ministry and typically operates six-weeks on, and six-weeks off. They always welcome new cooks and deliverers!
Located on the lower level of St. John's, below Field Hall, encore has been in operation for more than 40 years! Also known as "The Sacred Sisterhood of the Cellar", Encore is both a treasure trove of bargains, as well as a hub for fellowship for those shopping and the volunteers working there. New volunteers are always welcome! All funds raised at Encore go directly to E.C.W. and their many outreach projects. Click here for hours of operation and contact information.
St. John’s annual event that attracts folks from Barrington and beyond. Parishioners donate items they no longer need, use, or wear to be sold in locations throughout the St. John’s facility. Field Hall houses most of our clothing and shoes, while the church school wing becomes home to housewares, children’s games and toys, and much more.
