We are really involved with many different goings-on in our community. Here are some of the organisations we work with. For more information or to get involved, speak to one of the leadership team next Sunday or contact us.
Street Pastors is an inter-denominational Church response to urban problems, engaging with people on the streets to care, listen and dialogue.
It was pioneered in London in January 2003 by Rev Les Isaac, Director of the Ascension Trust, and has seen some remarkable results, including drops in crime in areas where teams have been working. There are now some 9,000 trained volunteers nearly 250 teams around the United Kingdom. - Taken from Street Pastors
The 4six3:walk series was an idea that grew over a period of time as they saw increasing numbers of children dropping out’ of church life at around the time they started secondary school. “We wanted to create a resource for Children's Church leaders and parents to use with their children that would help them to see the Bible as God's communication to them, not just to adults, and that God is interested in them, wants to help them and have a real relationship with them as individuals.” - Taken from 4six3.com
Poverty, isolation, abuse, ill health, injustice, homelessness: we all see the sharp inequalities of life around us and the devastating impacts they have on people's lives. Many of us want to do something, to get involved but we don't always know how. The Besom exists to help you make a difference to the lives of others and to make it easy for you to do so. The aim behind all Besoms is that everyone - whether you are three years old or over 80, whether working full-time or part-time, a student, a mum with toddlers, in between jobs or retired - can get involved. By giving your time, money, things or skills you can help those who are in real need and make a long term positive difference to their lives. - Taken from Besom.com
“Human trafficking is not just an awful reality, so are the statistics, with 99% of victims still left unrescued. Many people rightly ask, ‘What can we do to change this?’ It's a question Hope for Justice is actively addressing, and more so each year.
“Campaigning about the issue is important, but [Hope for Justice] are reaching much further than that — we are working towards a lasting solution. Our long term vision is to help bring about a complete end — we want to stamp it out for good.”
Hope for Justice has a growing staff and law team, working alongside specialist investigators who are absolutely committed to making this vision a reality. Our volunteer team includes thousands of people across the UK and Europe who support the cause by getting involved in ACTFORJUSTICEgroups, fundraising, campaigning and praying for change. Just this last year has seen us put in place many vital strategies, plans and policies to help us on to our next phase of action. - Taken from hopeforjustice.com
