ONE OF THE THINGS WE LOVE ABOUT JESUS IS HIS COMPASSION FOR THOSE IN NEED AND THE MARGINALISED
This is why we are passionate about helping people in need in the city of Derby and beyond.
What we've been doing:
Over the past few years we've been involved with:
Talk English - a project run by Derby City Council to trains and equip volunteers to run English courses and conversation classes for asylum seekers and those with limited English language skills.
International meals - free hot meals, community and games for asylum seekers from many nations.
Afghan Meals - for refugees from Afghanistan to come and cook their own delicious food in our kitchen and meet members of the local community.
Afghan Therapy - in our building for children and men from Afghanistan who have experienced trauma - in partnership with the charity 'For the Love of a Child.'.
Care4Calais - use our building to offer support and free tea and coffee to refugees on a Saturday afternoon.
We have exciting plans at the moment for starting a project to help anyone affected by the escalating cost of living crisis. Watch this space!
We have also supported several projects internationally: LOVE THE ONE a charity working with some of the poorest children in India; a school in Uganda, The Dalitso Trust, a development project in Malawi; two Vineyard South East Asia church plants which we have visited; the work of 'FRONTIERS' in the Middle East, Sam's House, a nursery/therapy centre in Lebanon for children fleeing the Syria Conflict.
