Serving Your Community

There are a variety of ways in which our churches are serving their communities. Many activities are focused around food, including coffee mornings, soup lunches, community café, community breakfast, food banks, and friendship centres.

Some churches have skills around crafts or other practical activities, while other are work with music or drama.

Different needs in their communities may be the focus for some churches, including, loneliness, poverty,  advice and internet support, homelessness, language support, and basic skills.

Or maybe you know a church that tries to meet the needs of different groups in their communities, offering support to families, young people, older people, or those who feel marginalised.

If you know of a church that is serving it's community, in whatever way, you may want to nominate them for a Serving the Community Award. Anyone can nominate a Congregational Federation Church.  Forms can be downloaded  or you can complete the form on line, and more information can be found on the forms.

Closing Date: This years award has now closed for applications. Look out for details of the 2020 competition coming soon.
