What we do:
Our aim is to provide a safe accepting environment where people can meet, build relationships of fellowship, understanding and love. A community where people can access activities; social and educational at their point of need and to assist all by supporting, befriending and serving in whatever way possible to alleviate distress, poverty and loneliness. We do this as we work from a basis of Christian commitment and values of love, hope and friendship. We believe we are all family, every person is important and every person has a purpose.
