Social concern

Following the recent publicity about the charities bringing undue pressure to bear on older and vulnerable people we have never sold or shared any of the data we hold to other charities or companies. We consider what we know about our supporters to be private, sensitive and precious

                         oooOOOooo

Our abiding concern is for families in distress

How we help

  • We knit tiny items of clothing for use by the special care baby units of hospitals and the Chaplaincy Department.
  • In our area Women’s Refuge receive regular collections of toiletries, toys and new clothes.
  • We help young people faced with homelessness by providing a ‘welcome box’ of necessities in association with Porchlight (Canterbury) and Trinity Foyer (Maidstone).
  • In association with Golding Homes we provide kitchen basics for the teenage mothers’ unit and provide parenting support.

HOMELESSNESS – A Prayer

  • We thank God for OUR homes: let us be ready to share them with those in need of shelter, and in need of home comforts lacking in their own accommodation.
  • We pray for those who make decisions and legislation affecting the plight of the homeless. May they act with wisdom and compassion.
  • “People who are homeless are not social inadequates. They are people without homes” (Sheila McKechnie, Housing Campaigner)
  • Lord, Forgive us when we are quick to judge and slow to help.
  • Lord, be with those who fear losing their homes because of financial concerns, relationship conflict or the whim of a landlord. May they know your peace and provision.
