ACT Food Bank & Job Club
All Christians together ACT
Our representatives are Jane Whitney, David & Judith Weston & Margaret Foster.
We held prayer walks in various locations on the last Thursday of every month except for August when many friends were on holiday. The last one was at Noel Baker School on the eve of this school becoming an academy with many new members of staff.
Sundays at Six
These services were very popular again during the year with an average of 70 attendees. A total of £1248 was raised overall which was donated to each churches preferred charity.
Collections continued during the year and were boosted by donations from the Harvest appeals and further donations from a Baptism at our church. We are providing a minimum of 4 bags of food per week. In addition festive bags were donated at Christmas.
Christians Against Poverty (CAP)
CAP continuous its good work in this area and nationally. A young family from Kent were featured on Songs of Praise last year as they were helped to get out of debt and they came to faith as a result of this ministry.
This is growing well and a new training course has started this year and one of our church members is taking part in this.
This event took place at the Alvaston district centre with £22.96 donated by the public which was given to the Food Bank.
Revd Trudie Morris has taken over leadership of ACT group after Revd Mike Lowe’s departure.
