This Year's Charity

Each year we support a different charity and fundraise for them. Sometimes it is an overseas charity and sometimes it is a local or national charity.


This year we are supporting the local charity Stick 'n' Step.

One of our congregation has been helped by this charity and you can read their story here.



We also support Christian Aid,  MuCAARD-UK and The Children's Society on a long-term basis.
