Serve Our Community is made up of four main strands. These are Inside Out, the Charity Shop, Christians Against Poverty (CAP) and Celebrate Recovery.
Inside Out is our project that provides furniture and white goods, and also redecorating, cleaning and gardening services in people’s homes. The Charity Shop sells reasonably priced items and holds a Community Hub on Tuesday mornings where people can drop in for a chat, advice, and signposting and free refreshments, representatives of each area of Serve Our Community are on hand to help. CAP is a charitable organisation that provides practical financial help to people who are in debt. Celebrate Recovery is a 12 step recovery programme which has helped hundreds of people overcome hurts, habits and hang-ups.
Other partner organisations are Street Pastors, who are dedicated to taking care of people on the streets late at night, and Hope For Justice who are passionate about ending modern day slavery.
How do we do it?
"Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day, teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime."
A big focus for us is that we don't just want to help people as a one-off. We want to give people the opportunity to gain skills that will have a lasting benefit, and make a real difference in their life.
We strive to do whatever we are capable of to help those who need it.
We are here to help!
We're always looking for passionate people to join our teams. Have a look at the different areas you could get involved and then send us an email!
