We are always looking for ways to make a difference in our local community. We also support overseas projects.
Lewes: Food Bank
We're so pleased to be able to host the Malling Food Bank in our building, and support their valuable work through helping with the regular food collections in Lewes.
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.
