Our Community

Our Community

We believe that as Christians our faith is reflected in every part of our lives and we seek to offer service in our communities and places of work. We also have an awareness of the wider needs of the World that we support in a variety of ways as individuals and in partnership with others.

“Loaves and Fishes”

Sevenoaks Food Bank. A container is available in our Hall Lobby if you would like to donate non-perishable food. These are taken weekly to St John’s Church distribution point.

Fairtrade

We use Fairtrade Coffee and our Traidcraft Stall is available every Sunday and throughout the week in the Coffee Lounge. We support the principles of Fairtrade and believe this is a small way of making a difference for particular communities in the third world.
