Community action shows God’s love by transforming people’s lives in amazing ways through the practical support given by volunteers (and sometimes paid workers).

Regardless of how ‘humble’ a project is, good things can come out of it, perhaps in more ways than we can imagine when we first begin.

Community action is right at the heart of the work of our church and has been for centuries. For example, the second great commandment asks that we love our neighbours as ourselves. In answer to the question ‘Who is my neighbour?’, Jesus tells the parable of the Good Samaritan, (Luke 10: 29-37), to show that everyone is our neighbour, and in the parable of the ‘Sheep and Goats’ he says: ‘whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did it for me’.

These are some of the projects we are involved with or support:

We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why many of our churches act as collecting points for donations of food, toiletries and other essential items. Please visit the foodbank website for more information about how you can help.

Caring for vulnerable children and families is important to us, which is why we support the work of the Children’s Society. Some churches host an annual Christingle Service to raise the profile of their work and to help raise financial support. More information can be found on the Children's Society web site.
