Historically the church, through its people, has provided help and support to people in need. This continues to be a key aim of our church life - to be there when the going gets tough, to provide practical and spiritual help as best we can. At several churches we have pastoral teams who are able to offer assistance in times of need. Foodbanks, the ARK Youth Ministry Project, the Tea Cosy Cafe and fellowship groups are other aspects of church life which aim to meet the caring needs in community. We would also never underestimate the power of prayer in the situations we come across - based on experience we know that prayer changes things, and God often transforms things to bring good out of bad.
