Donations for Afghan Refugees

We are overwhelmed by the generosity of our local community when we launched an appeal for clothes and nappies for the 450 Afghan Refugees quarantining in Greenwich.

Thank you for your response and for those who volunteered their time to sort and transport the donations.

At the moment we have no more capacity and so cannot take any more donations.

 

There will be more need when the refugees leave quarantine and we will keep the community updated on what you can do to help.

 

Thanks again for your kindness.

 

Loving Service in the Local Community

One of our Mission Priorities at Christ Church is Loving Service in the Local Community. We are committed to offering loving and welcoming hospitality which reflects God’s love and welcome for all.

We welcome and serve people of all faiths and none.

At Christ Church, we seek to be a place where God’s justice, mercy and compassion can be found.  We are inspired by following a God of justice and by the biblical imperative, “Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.” (Isaiah 1:17)

We seek to engage with and serve our local community. We recently conducted a community survey in East Greenwich which highlighted some of the areas of need such as the lack of any CAB or legal advice centre.

We welcome working in partnership with other organisations and welcome people from the local community to work alongside us. We are in partnership with Law Works to host the East Greenwich Legal Advice Clinic and on 9th February and 2nd November 2018 we partnered with Feed the Hungry to host a food packing event which packed 1,000 meals for children in Africa:
