A totally Christian Church
Serving those in need
We quietly offer help in many needy circumstances; some close to home and many far away. We do this naturally because it reflects the heart of God. All this happens quietly, to protect the privacy of the recipient, but it amounts to a substantial ministry.
Most of our activities don't make any charge; but the couple that do charge a weekly "subscription" put all the income into our "Community Jar". These funds and others are then used to support our humanitarian giving, including the offer of occasional free meals for those in need who come into the Coffee Shop.
In addition to these "one-off" gifts, we provide regular help to a small number of humanitarian needs:
Sponsorship of 3 children abroad
We support three children abroad in their spiritual, social and welfare needs.
Ethiopian Jews making Aliyah (return to the Land of Israel)
Most of the thousands of Jews making Aliyah from Ethiopia are extremely poor and have had to leave everything behind when they left. Items we sent out to help the poorest people include: Toothpaste, toothbrushes, soaps, flannels, bandages, plasters, NEW baby feeding bottles, NEW dummies, bibs, baby wipes.
Blankets for Israeli Children
Over 400 blankets were sent by our knitting group for children from poor Israeli families.
