We believe that God loves our communities, and has wonderful plans to breathe more of His life into them. So, we prayerfully and practically engage to see lives and spaces transformed in three key ways:
In meeting people’s practical needs with compassion and provision.
By inviting people into a place of significance and belonging, with opportunities to meet their social, material, and spiritual needs.
Through inspiring confidence for a future marked by worth, purpose, and resilience.
There’s great variety and creativity in how we do this, so we have loads of ways that you can get involved.
We have a number of events coming up that we would love for you to get involved with, pray over and/or come along to!
The first is our Summer Picnic & Mini Railway adventure taking place on Saturday 10th August from 11am – 2pm. This is a free outreach event, so, bring your picnic and we will bring along some extra bits to munch. Take rides on the train, play some games, there will be something for everyone. Come with your friends and neighbours, and we’d also encourage you to connect with other families who have been invited.
To book your ticket email us here.
On Friday 30th August we will be holding our annual Back to School Day at The Founders Studio, where we equip children from families in need with school shoes, haircuts, backpacks and much more.
If you would like to get involved in the day please do contact Erik Jespersen.
In Woking, we have a fantastic building called The Lighthouse, that hosts a wide range of projects including a food bank, creative art workshops, a children’s clothing & equipment bank, cooking classes, a job club, community lunches, confidence workshops for women, a social enterprise coffeehouse, refugee support, bible studies, bread-making classes, life coaching, and much more.
In Guildford, we are currently looking for premises to set up a Lighthouse, but we are already involved in lots of projects. These include supporting families in crisis, visiting the homeless hostel, providing activities and outings for families in need, running holiday clubs, hosting coffee drop-ins, and many others. We also work alongside other churches and organisations in the town visiting prisons and hospitals, running job clubs, providing debt support, offering life skills workshops and praying for people on the streets.
We’d love EVERYONE in the church to be part of seeing our communities transformed through kindness, belief, and hope. So, if you’d like to know more about any of these projects, or have ideas for something new, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the church office.
