Caring for our neighbours near and far

Award-winning local action
At the end of 2017, Community Church Ramsgate won the Christian Funders’ Forum Gold Award for best social action project in the UK. 
In April 2017 - after many ups and downs - the church had moved into a purpose-built facility on the corner of two local housing estates. The building houses a coffee shop with indoor play space, a pre-school, a community hall (used by the church for Sunday worship) and a suite of rooms used for church life and social work, all within the same four walls. 
The church was recognised for its “pioneering model [that] brings together under one roof the best of open community programmes, and statutory and charitable services, with a vibrant and growing church at its heart.”
Learn more about the church’s vision, the incredible journey to this point, and their vision for the future on our news page…
A global opportunity
We can’t all set up an award-winning ministry hub, but we can all be involved in meeting needs locally and globally. Our Christmas Appeal 2017 is still open. Here are three ways you can get involved:
  1. Donate (or make-good on your pledge to donate through your church’s special offering). Individuals can donate by text, online, via bank transfer or even by cheque. Details on our appeal page.
  2. Raise awareness by sharing the video through social media, in your small group or at church.
  3. Pray. We can do our part of ‘planting’ and 'watering’, but it is God who brings the fruit. Pray that the money raised will go a long way and will be used wisely and well to help people in Kenya and India find their pathways from poverty.
The deadline for donations is the end of February, so don’t let those January blues lull you into lethargy, act now!
Beacon Church

Last night we were stunning stories of folks who have left country and home in order to ‘buried’ in another nation. Today we’re praying for those interns who have come to UK to serve this year. So proud of @RoyalZach at @redeemercol and Salome at @kingsnorwich
