As a community we have a passionate heart for social justice in our city. It's our vision to help people SERVE their city, and our engagement with Social Action helps us do just that.
Our strategy for social action is to partner with other agencies. We think we can have the biggest impact, not by starting up lots of our own initiatives, but by throwing our support behind a few of the most credible, most effective charities out there.
Love Running is a mass entry into the Bristol 10k Road Race to raise money for local city need and global crisis. Over the five times we've done this in Bristol we've mobilised 2,500 runners and raised over £600,000.
We're doing it again this year. Find out more.
The Wild Goose
Our mid-week Hubs aren't just places for spiritual reflection and community building. They're places where we can learn to serve the vulnerable and marginalised.
Hubs regularly volunteer at the Wild Goose Drop-In Centre, providing the homeless of Bristol with a safe space, a good meal and some care and attention.
The Wild Goose is part of Crisis Centre Ministries, an award winning charity that has been operating in Bristol for over 30 years.
We've teamed up with the national charity, TLG - Transforming Lives for Good - to support a secondary school in one of Bristol's most deprived wards. Each week a group of us go into the school to mentor some of its most needy children, providing them with emotional support as well as educational assistance.
The TLG programme has a proven track record in improving behaviour and helping children gain greater levels of confidence. Most pupils we see end up making greater than expected progress in English and Maths.
