Community

As part of Christ’s body we are seeking to reach out in the area, providing friendship and acts of service that we trust will benefit individuals, families and the neighbourhood. We are also involved in local school assemblies and classes and meet with local town Councilors periodically.

Our church building is a resource that is used by different Community and Christian groups, for the elderly, parenting classes, choir, exercise groups or private functions.

  • Each year we join with 100+ other volunteers to take part in The Noise project, offering practical help to neighbours, such as decorating, gardening, litter clearing, lunch clubs, graffiti cleaning, children and youth activities, car washing etc.
  • HIT Camp: (Heroes in Training) is our annual weekend in June at Carroty Wood in Tonbridge for 7-11s. Swimming, crafts, playing games, wilderness activities, adventure area including SWAMP!, lessons and campfires are all part of the action packed weekend.
  • Holiday Club: A wonderful cost-free time of fun and friendship as these high energy days teach central Christian truths. A joint church venture for children aged 5-11 (or due to start school in September).
  • With the support of local police and councillors we are also involved with a Street Pastors Initiative which reaches out to the 3-4,000 young people who come into town on weekends to visit pubs or night clubs.
  • Churches for Tunbridge Wells CfTW and the Fellowship of the Churches of Christ, all provide opportunities to get to know the Wider Body of Christ.
  • We join with other churches and the mosque in shared activities including football matches…
