COMMUNITY CARE SERVICES
We understand these words of Jesus to be a call to action.
As Christians we should be compassionate, loving and offer practical help wherever we can. We try to be that and serve our local community through the services outlined here.
MakeLunch offers free hot lunches on Tuesdays and Thursdays during school holidays for families with young children struggling on tight budgets, plus a time to play and chat.
The Furniture Project
The Furniture Project collects good quality furniture to give away free to recipients in the local area who are in difficult financial or domestic situations. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the church office (01494 431882) - We are currently not collecting white goods.
TLG Early Intervention Programme
TLG Train up volunteers from churches who go into a school weekly for 1 year to work with a particular child, identified by the school as having need for additional 1:1 support. They use fun, creative projects along with TLG's emotional literacy coaching resources to best support the chid they are working with.
Restoring Homes / Clearing Gardens
Our team offers a low key house decorating and/or garden clearing service for the elderly and those with mobility or long term health problems.
Christians Against Poverty (CAP)
CAP Provides sound and robust advice (plus a befriending support service based here at Kings') to people with financial and major debt problems.
New Home Starter Packs
For those fleeing situations of domestic violence and abue, any new home that is offered is often very sparse; bare walls, bare floors, bare cupboards. We provide new crockery, cutlery, glasses, kettle, toaster and other kitchen and domestic products, plus the potential for some new carpeting.
Working with local community midwives, BabyBasics provides vulnerable women facing finacial or domestic hardship with a moses basket full of essential products for starting life with a new baby.

Bereavement support to church and non-church clients through listening, courses and a 'Hearts of Love Service.' For anyone who has been bereaved whether recently or many years ago.
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment.
And the second is like it: Love your neighbour as yourself.
