Outreach

We support many charities.

Over the years these have included Christian projects in Africa.

For the last few years, members of this church have been supporting Embrace the Middle East to assist their work with the Al Ahli Hospital in Gaza City. The hospital is a highly respected health care provider serving a particularly vulnerable community where there are huge health needs. (www.embraceme.org)

Locally, in Redbridge, we support the Schools Workers of the Christian Education Project. They conduct lessons and assemblies that aim to assist teachers in their delivery of Christianity as part of the RE syllabus. (www.christianeducationproject.org.uk)

Before the Covid pandemic we regularly arranged Tea Afternoons in our Large Hall called Musical Memories. These were fun times for those living with dementia and their carers. Money raised from these events went to the Alzheimer's Society. We hope to start these occasions again.  

In December 2019 we donated a selection of children's games and toys to the Children's charity Barnardo's.

Shoeboxes

In November 2020, we responded to the Operation Christmas Child Project (Samaritan's Purse). We donated 22 boxes, filled with gifts for needy children, which were then sent abroad. (www.samaritans-purse.org.uk)
This month, we have collected over 50 shoeboxes filled with fun items for children.

Throughout the year we donate food and non-consumable items to our local Redbridge Food Bank. The photo below show donations at our Harvest Festival. (www.redbridgefoodbank.org)

We also support Christian Aid in their work to eradicate poverty, support sustainable development and to provide disaster relief around the world.   (www.christianaid.org.uk)
