COMMUNITY

Supporting people and working towards community transformation

SERVING PEOPLE, SUPPORTING THOSE IN NEED

We are a vibrant church in Tunbridge Wells, made up of ordinary people from different nationalities, cultures and backgrounds. We believe that God created and loves all people, and that he invites each of us into a life long relationship with him, outworked in community together. We’re passionate about helping people encounter Jesus for themselves, grow in faith together, and make a lasting difference in the world.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE

Sharing God’s love in our community and around the world.

KINTSUGI HOPE

Why ‘Kintsugi Hope’?

The stress and demands of modern living are taking their toll on our mental health and wellbeing. Author Brené Brown believes that we live in ‘the most medicated, addicted, overweight cohort of history’. The majority of us may feel the affect, but don’t fully understand the cause. Many of us don’t even feel comfortable talking about our mental wellbeing.

What is a Kintsugi Hope Group?

A Kintsugi Hope Group is a safe and supportive space for people who feel or have felt overwhelmed, providing tools for self-management in a facilitated peer mentoring style setting.

CAP LIFE SKILLS

Life Skills is a friendly group that gives people the confidence and decision making skills they need to survive life on a low income. Over 8 weeks we teach people practical money saving techniques, such as cooking on a budget, living healthily on less, and making your money go further. Everyone finds dealing with the pressures of life a stressful and lonely challenging at times. That’s why CAP Life Skills is designed to be a fun and relaxed place where you’ll meet other people in similar situations, who understand you and can encourage you. To contact us about our next CAP Life Skills course, please email: helenbrewis@caplifeskills.org More details of the course can be found here: https://capuk.org/i-want-help/our-services/cap-life-skills/introduction

 

STREET PASTORS AND PRAYER PASTORS

“Street Pastors is about Christians rolling up their sleeves and getting involved in practically responding to the problems of crime and safety…” STREET PASTORS Street pastors are trained volunteers from local churches who care about their community. They patrol in teams of men and women, usually from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. on in Tunbridge Wells Town Centre, to care for, listen to and help people who are out on the streets. PRAYER PASTORS Prayer Pastors prayerfully support the Street Pastors whilst they are out on the streets, and are vital to the initiative as a whole.

FOODBANK

Our Food Bank has been set up to help those in need during the season of COVID19.
The Food Bank is to aid recipients over their short-term crisis and our Food Bank helpers support people in need to ensure a smooth transition to using other resources.

WELCOME CHURCHES

Many have experienced severe trauma, loss and distress. We have signed up with WelcomeChurches to provide a welcoming community for refugees to belong to.
