Social Action

As a church we remained committed to preaching the Gospel of Jesus by all possible means, and in recognition of this fact we purposely reach out to our surrounding community, speaking up as a voice of truth, justice and love in the midst of a lost generation.

We are committed to social action and outreach work. As a church we have an excellent reputation in the town for communtiy action, and work with all other churches in joint programming and planning. The church is an active member of the local council of churches for Rushden & Higham Ferrers and a key member of the East Northants Faith Group. Our Minister Mark Lees serves part-time as the Development Officer for the ENFG, seeking to fulfil the faithworks charter and see “Faith put back in the heart of the community”.

We are here to serve those most at need within our local community. Whether it’s just to be a listening ear when going through a difficult situation or providing accommodation to help someone get off the streets, we’re here to lend a hand.

East Northants Community Services runs Sanctuary Night Shelter for rough sleepers,Recovery House supporting those with life-controlling addictions, Rushden Food Bank,Cornerfield Café, Stepping Stones moving-on accommodation, a job club and a debt & money advice service.

The Support Team is also able to provide information, advice and guidance to anyone who is homeless or threatened with homelessness even if we cannot offer you a bed.
