Support for people who are homeless or experiencing crisis
As well as monetary donations, we have regular collections of dry food, tins and toiletries.
All We Can
We also support the work of All We Can (formerly the Methodist Relief and Development Fund) with a number of collections during the year.
Jobs, Training and Enterprise Hub (JTE Hub)
We are working towards hosting events such as a job club, work skills training and support to start your own business, which will benefit people in our local community. We have had building work done to make our facilities more accessible, with help from the Port Communities Resilience Fund.
We are very concerned about the importance of caring for God’s Earth and are currently undertaking an audit by A Rocha UK looking at 5 key areas of our church life: Worship and teaching; Management of our church buildings; Management of our church land; Community and global engagement; and Lifestyle.
Dementia Friendly Churches
We want to ensure that we are doing our best to be a church that is welcoming and accessible for people living with dementia, and we want to be supportive to people in our community who are affected by this condition. We have organised events (such as Dementia Friends Information sessions), been working on an audit, and been trying to incorporate best practice.
