We are always looking for ways to make a difference in our local community. We also support overseas projects.
Lewes: Befriending Scheme
King's Friends is our befriending scheme which links trained volunteers with people in the Lewes area who would appreciate some company and friendship. If you or someone you know would benefit from this scheme, please do get in touch.
Lewes: Care Home Activities
(Not currently running due to Coronavirus)
We run regular activities at a care home in Lewes. Our team chats with and sometimes sings with the residents. They often take a friendly dog along too, which the residents love!
Lewes: School Early Intervention
We have a team of trained coaches working in a local school to support children. Through demonstrating care, commitment and continuity our coaches support personal growth and resilience in children's lives. The scheme is run in partnership with TLG: a national charity which partners with churches to equip them in delivering projects that will support children, families and schools in their local community.
The Early Intervention scheme enables trained volunteers to become coaches and work on a one-to-one basis with children. It aims to improve emotional awareness and explore difficult feelings and situations that may be impacting on the child's engagement with education. It increases their confidence and aspirations, and explores their choices and the consequences of the decisions that they make. The focus can be on any issues that are affecting the child at school or at home.

We support a church in Tirana, the capital of Albania. We have partnered with their pastor over several years to support their work which includes showing God's love in practical ways. They run their own social action and youth projects helping some of the poorest people in their society.
We work with a small church in Lesotho in southern Africa that helps to provide medical care and farming support to their rural community. There is a church-based health clinic with medical staff and carers who also travel to isolated communities. A large element of the work is helping those with HIV and AIDS for whom there is no state provision.
