Introduction


We try to put our faith into practise in our daily life as individuals and our common life as a church.

We are committed to supporting those who try to make the world a better place. To that end we are involved in the Fair Trade Campaign and have a Fair Trade stall every Sunday. We also support Christian Aid and in addition choose four other charities for which we raise money each quarter. Recent charities have included The International Cancer Centre in Neyyour, India, the local Fair Trade shop, so that they can upgrade their premises, and The Medical Foundation for the Care of the Victims of Torture. The children raised money for The Lady Hoare Trust for children with arthritis. We also respond to one-off appeals such as Christian Aid's Special Appeal for Iraq.

We also try to make sure that we have plenty of things happening on site which we hope have a positive effect on us and our neighbours. We run some things ourselves, some in partnership with others, and we also provide space for other users who share our aim of working with people to create a better community regardless of their beliefs, race, gender, age and sexual orientation. We hope that this is reflected in what's on offer at the church and our future plans.
