Who are we?
The Vine Community Hub has been set up by Salford Elim Church. We are a small team of local volunteers who care about the people of our area.
Where are we?
You can find us at 87-89 Cholmondeley Rd, Salford M6 8PU.
We offer a range of holistic support and activities aimed at reducing isolation, improving well-being, and building community such as:
Mondays from 10-12pm and Tuesdays from 10.30-12pm
Pop in for a brew and a natter. There’s always a friendly face and a selection of board games you can use if you are feeling competitive! We have a baby-friendly area too for those with little ones.
Tuesdays and Wednesday from 12-1pm
Tired of eating alone? Want to meet new people and build relationships? Join us for a simple meal and some company. Meals are free of charge but donations are gratefully received.
Tuesdays from 10.30-12pm
If you enjoy painting, creating collages and learning new art techniques or just fancy having fun and being creative, come along to our relaxed sessions, led by an experienced local artist. You might be surprised by what you create! £1 per session towards materials costs
Tuesdays from 1-2.30pm
We meet weekly to be creative and enjoy good company. You don’t need to be skilled but you might find you are more creative than you thought! We occasionally arrange day trips out and support one another whenever we can.
Wednesday Prayer and Worship
Wednesdays from 10.30-12pm
A chance to pray, reflect on the bible, worship. Whatever church you are part of, or whether you are just exploring faith, you will be warmly welcomed.

Brews and soft drinks will be available or you can bring your own bottle with you.
Community Counselling Service
Led by a fully qualified counsellor who is a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), we offer free counselling sessions; either face-to-face, via Zoom or by telephone. We are experienced in dealing with a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, bereavement, low self-esteem, anger, work-related stress, abuse and relationship issues. To make an appointment, pop in or fill out our online form.
Do you need some practical help but don’t have the money to pay a professional trades person for labour costs? Maybe your garden needs clearing, you need something fixing or moving but haven’t got the physical ability to do it?
We are not experts but we will give most things a go! As a small team of volunteers, we can’t promise to be able to help but if we can, we will (you just pay for any material costs).To discuss your practical needs, pop in for a chat or email firstname.lastname@example.org
