What we do

Serving the Community

Serving the Community
As a church community we seek to serve the needs of the local neighbourhood in many different ways. Here are some examples:
  • We provide an Open Door Community every Thursday - a place to stop for a coffee and a chat if you'd just like some company or someone to talk with.
  • Also on Thursday mornings we offer classes for some non-English speakers who would like to learn some basic English language skills.
  • From time to time we host an "International Cafe" for visiting overseas students, providing not only a warm welcome and a friendly face but also an opportunity to learn about some of those puzzling English customs.
  • On the third Saturday morning of each month we provide a (free) hot breakfast for anyone who turns up - especially those who are in great need and a temporary place of safety and refuge.
  • Two or three times a year we host a Community Fun Day for everyone in the neighbourhood. Why not look out for the next one and come and visit us.
Apprenticed to Jesus
“So what do you do with the rest of your time?” I love getting asked this because it means I get to talk about what I’m part of here, at Portswood Church
