Christian Aid

"We don't buy a child food for a week, we teach them to grow food for the rest of their lives."

Christian Aid is unlike most charities, that just raise money and give it to the people in need of it. They send dedicated people to the poorest countries, whom buy the equipment that those in need can use to help build a better life for themselves.

Once a year Christian Aid sets aside a week for all supporting Churches to work together and collate as much money as possible in our local areas. Our Christian Aid representative is Sharon Northey.

Night Shelter

Merton Winter Night Shelter provides people who sleep rough in the Merton area with healthy and home-made food, a warm and dry place to sleep and a friendly atmosphere where they can relax and let their guard down for a night.

Nearly twenty faith groups throughout Merton, including well over 300 volunteers, have opened their doors so that rough sleepers can have a warm and safe place to sleep during the winter months.

Street Pastors

The Church in action on the streets

Caring, Listening, Helping

They have trained over 12,000 street pastors, who play an active part in more than 270 towns and cities around the UK.

When you add prayer pastors, management teams and trustees, this means that there are over 20,000 volunteers in total associated with the Street Pastors network.
Street Pastors engage with people on the streets to care for them, listen to them and help them.
They work together with other partners in the night-time economy to make communities safer.

Alpha

The one and only course for those whom are seriously considering a life as a Christian. This course is designed for an intelligent young adult, whom wants to take an objective look at the Bible's message.

After a delicious meal we take a simple approach of a 45 minute DVD lecture, by Nicky Gumbel from Holy Trinity Brompton followed by an active discussion concerning how you feel about the topics raised.

Although designed for those new to Christianity, it's also a great chance to re-evaluate your faith or deepen it further by taking a glance at Nicky Gumbel's deep insight of the Bible's simple message.
