Charities we support

As a church we support a variety of charities in our prayers and with donations. Not all of them are explicitly “Christian”, but we believe that their work witnesses to the love of God in the various communities that they serve.

Family Support Work

The Chichester Diocesan Association for Family Support Work Charity No 285337

FSW helps families in Sussex to overcome their difficulties and prevent crisis. They support families struggling with issues such as poverty, ill health, learning difficulties, bereavement, family break-up and domestic abuse.

St Peter and St James Hospice

St Peter & St James Hospice provides expert care to adults living with a life-limiting illness in our community. Their support extends to friends and families too. The community includes Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath, Lewes, Uckfield and everywhere in between.

Practical Action

Reg Charity No 247257

Practical Action say: “Our ultimate goal is a world that works better for everyone. A world where smallholder farmers can earn a decent living while working in harmony with the environment. Where parents can cook nutritious family meals without risking their health. And where businesses, schools and clinics have the electricity they need to help their communities succeed. We’re working towards a world where people in slum communities and refugee camps live in safety and dignity. Women entrepreneurs have the confidence and the skills to build profitable businesses. And people on the front line of climate change can adapt to the challenges of extreme weather and thrive. The communities we work with face significant challenges. The effects of climate change, environmental degradation, and the ongoing pandemic make this a critical time. But we see the opportunities for positive change and we know that our goals are not only achievable, but have never been more relevant.”
