Community Development

We believe that showing faith in action is at the heart of the gospel, and are passionate about the unique role that local church can play in bringing good news to the poor.   We are keen to be relevant to the needs of our local community, and to offer a range of supportive activities.  Recent examples include Healthy Eating, Weight Management, Job Clubs, Parenting Skills, Homework Clubs, and Advice.

Our Community Development Manager, Nicky Sommers, networks with other local organisations to ensure we are linked into local provision.

Our approach is informed by Liveability, who in partnership with Tearfund develped Community Mission www.communitymission.org.uk Both organisations have decades of experience of working alongside people affected by poverty, and pursuing justice in the UK and across the world.  Together they help us grapple with issues of injustice and poverty.
