We will help people in anyway we can, with talking or food

WE HAVE a broad age range and we’re all really committed to God and fulfilling his vision in the community.

We want to reach out with God’s love in the community and for each other.

And we have home groups so we’re very supportive of each other and we try to have a really family feel.

We’re very lively, we have worship bands and groups with guitars and drums, we’re quite loud sometimes, which is good.

We’re open to anybody, we have whole age ranges, backgrounds and spectrum of problems people come in with and that’s fine.

God is open to everybody, just accepts them the way they are, we do the same.

If we see people in need, to leave them in that state is not right, you’ve got to do something towards helping them in their situation.

We’re situated in Lee and it’s really good to reach out into our local community so we can build relationships with people, which is really important. People who are lonely, people who just need to talk, we have time for them and not just us.

If we can’t fulfil that at our group then there loads of other people in the church who will come alongside people and help them.

When we give people food from the FISH scheme some people say no thanks but most are really good, they’re very grateful.

Some people offer to help us and ask us to let them know, they’re very open and generous people.

I can understand how some people feel, we have discussed having a logo on our van but decided not to because people might not want to let their neighbours know they’re getting food - which is fine.

We’ve all been in that situation, we’re not there to judge.
