The Charity Shop has just completed 5 years of serving the community on 183 Lower Clapton Road. It has been an exciting period as our team of volunteers led and managed by Julia Ghann have turned around the viability of this non for profit venture. Currently, the shop proceeds support youth work, cyber café and disadvantaged orphange projects in Africa.
The Afterschool club is currently closed and in preparation to reopen soon. So, WATCH THIS SPACE.
This internet café is open three days a week (Tuesdays to Thursday) from 10am till 5pm. Many in the community and passers-by walk in to connect with others to browse the net.
Alongside the Cyber Café, the Café is open and sells snacks and drinks to the community. It has become a melting pot for many people as some come along with their children to play in the church’s crèche space while they relax for some tea and coffee.
This community Youth group is still under preparation, yet to start, so WATCH THIS SPACE
The shelter provides accommodation for homeless people every winter season starting 1st January to the end of March each year. Accommodation is provided by seven other churches on a daily rotation basis. Open Doors operate the shelter every Saturday night in the Upper Hall. On Sunday mornings, breakfast is provided and the homeless people are allowed to stay in the foyer or join in the morning church service and leave whenever they want to. Open Doors has been involved in this for the past six years and interest is growing year on year as we endeavour to also share our faith when the opportunity arises. Dr Frances Akinwunmi has been instrumental in leading this community venture from its inception.
