ADRA is committed to improving the quality of human life. It serves people without regard to their ethnic, political, or religious association. It helps those in need, especially those most vulnerable such as women and children.

We support the work of ADRA UK, including it’s annual shoe box appeal. In 2012 the shoe boxes were sent to Burkina Faso.

CCP (County Community Projects) in Gloucestershire exists to improve the lives of children, young people, families and vulnerable adults with multiple and complex needs.

We regularly support them by providing food for their “Foodshare” emergency food parcels to vulnerable families.

Victory Outreach UK

Ever since the work of Victory Outreach UK began, their focus has been to rescue those whose lives have been wrecked through addictions. Their mission is to bring wholeness to each person that enters through the doors of any of their homes. Over two decades they have seen thousands of young people who have been given a chance and, through the hope found in Christ, have been changed and transformed. They believe in making a difference one life at a time.

They work closely with chaplaincies within prisons, probation officers and those involved in resettling ex-offenders. They have a large referral base that operates throughout the country where men and women are sent to us for help.

We support Victory Outreach UK financially through individual and collective giving.

Cheltenham Street Pastors

https://streetpastors.org/locations/cheltenham

Street Pastors are an inter-denominational Church response to urban problems, engaging with people by caring, listening and talking. They are church members who are willing to offer support, practical help and a visible ministry to those who are out in the town late at night. They reassure folk who may feel vulnerable, help reduce the fear of crime, provide a listening ear and offer genuine, non-judgmental pastoral support to those who need help. They are not about preaching but about helping people – the gospel is at the heart of what they do and why they do it but not at the forefront of what they say.

Cheltenham has the third largest night time economy in the South West giving our Churches a wonderful opportunity to serve the community.
