A safe place where conversations happen

a safe place

Breakfast on the Brow is a community based project which has been running since February 2013; serving breakfast to students every Saturday during term time between 11am and 1pm, as well as providing a place for young people to meet friends, read the newspapers or chat to a friendly volunteer. Tea, coffee, juice, bacon sandwiches and egg baps are offered free of charge, although donations are accepted to help cover costs and supplement funding.

The project is based at Brow House on Mabfield Road in Manchester; a community house owned by the local Residents Association. It is in the heart of an area of privately owned student accommodation and opposite the university’s largest Halls of Residence, Owen’s Park, making it the ideal location for an initiative such as this.

The aim is to create an atmosphere of community where faith based conversations can happen, as well as reaching out to a generation that is ‘missing’ from church.

We have seen this happen!
