We like to be proactive and show the love of Jesus to the local community.
Our regular weekly activities reach out to all ages from babies to seniors.
A group from the church take to the street, often on a cold December evening, to sing carols which we hope are a sweet sound in
people's ears! We take the opportunity to distribute leaflets telling people of the Christmas services which are at Belmont Road
and to assure them that there will find a warm welcome. If people feel able to they can also give money to a good cause. Last year
we collected money for the local hospice
In early November, as Christmas fast approaches, we think of children on the other side of the world who will not be receiving that
visit from Father Christmas. We hope to make their Christmas better by filling shoeboxes with simple gifts. The church has a
co-ordinator who checks that the boxes contain suitable items and who then drops off the boxes at a designated drop off point
established by the organisation 'Samaritan's Purse'
Every October, we raise money to support various projects throughout the world, helping those in need. These projects are usually
run by the BMS. The money is raised through the church running a social evening on the Saturday followed by a family service on
the Sunday morning.
We are currently supporting a Missionary who serves in Chad. This is Rebecca North, a Nurse who represents the Missionary Society
BMS. You can follow her blog
