Charity support and links

Christian Aid has a vision of an end to poverty and believes that vision can become a reality. Members of the Church collect throughout the Parish each year for Christian Aid Week. In 2012 the collection raised £1,850. Thank you to everyone who contributed.

Brighton and Hove Street Pastors  has a team of Street Pastors offering support in the centre of the city every Friday and at least one Saturday each month from 9pm till 2.30am.

Thank you to all who contributed to our 2012 Christmas Card appeal; this raised £1,000 for Chestnut Tree House Children's Hospice

2012 Harvest Appeal Many thanks to all those who gave so generously to the Mothers' Union Relief Fund. We raised the magnificent sum of £1,000.

Our Harvest appeal in 2011 raised £800 for the Izulu orphan projects which help orphans and widows who are affected by HIV and Aids in KwaZulu, Natal, South Africa. You can read more about Izulu here

The 2011 Christmas Card Appeal raised a similar amount  for the Chichester Diocese organisation, Family Support Work
Click here for the thank you notes from these organisations

The Lovey Founodation was established in Bawku (in Ghana’s Upper Eastern region) with the help of Yaa Asare, a member of our congregation, to raise money for the children to get school uniforms.  The Foundation, made up of local people living in Bawku, also aim to educate the children’s families about the importance of sending their children to school. 

Helping to prevent youth homelessness
Nightstop is an emergency housing service for 16-25 year olds at risk of homelessness. The service aims to prevent street homelessness and offer vulnerable young people suitable emergency accommodation. Accommodation is provided in the homes of approved volunteer hosts within the community.
When a young person loses their accommodation it can lead to breakdown in many areas of their life including relationships, education and employment. Nightstop makes a real difference to young people by offering safe accommodation.
Nightstop urgently needs volunteer hosts. They rely on volunteers from the community to provide the service; volunteers provide an evening meal, a safe and secure private room, washing facilities, breakfast and most importantly a safe homely environment and a listening ear or quiet space. In exchange for this Nightstop covers expenses and all volunteers are fully trained and supported in their role.
