Social Action

"Feed the hungry, and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon." (Isaiah 58:10)
We believe that as followers of Jesus we should show God's love by caring for the world and for the people around us.  That is why we support a number of local, national and international charities.
Love Hersham
During Lent 2020 we want to show love to our community in Hersham by taking on a series of social action projects.  As a community of churches, we want to invite you, the residents of Hersham, to join us in this adventure.  Do you have ideas for projects that we could undertake?  Can you commit some time to help lead or assist in a project?  Then we would love to hear from you!  It could be a litter pick through the park, gardening for the elderly, putting on a coffee morning for local mums or many other ideas.  Please contact to let us know your ideas and how you can help and take a look at the website
Community Project Support
We work closely with Walton and Hersham Foodbank to support the work they do in the community providing 3 day emergency food parcels to people experiencing crisis.  If you are struggling to put food on the table then please do get in touch and we can help you access the support you need.  We also take up food collections for the Foodbank at different times throughout the year.  See the Foodbank wesbite for details of the most needed items.
On Wednesday mornings from 10am to 12pm we host a Breatsfeeding Support Group run by health visitors from Children's Health Surrey.  This is a free drop-in group.  Take a look at their website for more information.
We run the CAP Money Course from time to time.  It's a free course that teaches you budgeting skills and a simple, cash-based system that works. Whether you feel pretty organised or whether it's like a lucky dip every time you try to withdraw cash from your account, the CAP Money Course will help you take complete control of your finances.

Take a look at this video clip to find out more and contact Phil to find out when the next course is running.
Charities and Missionaries we support regularly
Each year in the run up to Christmas we make up shoeboxes of gifts for Operation Christmas Child - the project to send gifts to children who wouldn't otherwise get any presents through the charity Samaritans Purse.
As part of the Baptist Union of Great Britain we support Home Mission and BMS World Mission as they help churches and individuals to bring the love of God to communities far and wide.
The children of HBC give monthly to Compassion to support a child overseas.
We also support a number of missionaries working for overseas charities.  For more information on these please click on the links below.
