REACHING OUT

community outreach

Jesus loves unconditionally, gives freely, and brings hope, justice and new beginnings.

We are called to do the same.

We are passionate about reaching out to the community around us, demonstrating and extending God’s Kingdom, and expressing the love of Father in many ways, both spiritually and practically.

  • The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.

    Mark 12:31
  • No one should seek their own good, but the good of others.

    1 Corinthians 10:24
  • The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor.”

    Luke 4:18-19
  • For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.

    Matthew 25:35

Current initiatives

The Good Food Co-op

We are hugely excited to be part of launching The Good Food Co-op; an innitiative to help make healthy food accessible to all in our Borough. Put simply, every box of delicious fruit and veg that is purchesed helps a local family or individual in need to receive a box.

CHOIRS

CURRENTLY SUSPENDED DUE TO COVID-19

Choirs are a wonderful way of reaching out to our community, encouraging people from all walks of life and backgrounds to come into a fun and engaging environment where they can establish relationships and build trust. Singing in choirs also has widely recognised positive impacts on both physical and mental health and we have seen the results of this first hand through the choirs we run.
