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.
Once a year in June we host a Community Fun Day for everyone in the neighbourhood. Why not look out for the next one and come and visit us.
We run a large but friendly babies & toddler group called 'Portswood Pod' every Tuesday morning during term time from 10am - 11am welcoming all families of different shapes, sizes and backgrounds to have fun together for a small cost of £1.50 per family. http://www.portswood.org/portswood-blog/portswood-pod
We hold a Messy Church each term usually on a Monday between 3.45-5.45 which includes a meal for all of the family at the end. https://www.messychurch.org.uk/
