The Christian Centre is passionate about touching the lives of those who find themselves disadvantaged or marginalised in Nottingham. We believe that each and every one of us should embrace the gospel mandate of engaging with issues of poverty in some way, and to facilitate this, we work hand in hand with 58i, our sister charity. The vision is inspired by the words of Isaiah 58, where God instructs that we are to share our food with the hungry, clothe the naked and provide shelter for the homeless. Scores of volunteers from both inside and outside the Christian Centre are mobilized in projects that have been established to do just this. Below is a list of some of the projects we are currently working on. If you would like to be a part of any of these, please contact Luke or Lynne, on the details to the left.
CAP (Christians Against Poverty) – volunteers are needed to support Carol with debt counselling. Again commitment can vary depending on your availability but all work is required to take place in the day time. All training will be provided. If you would further information about CAP or would like to access this service click here.
Company - Company is a group for parents/carers and their pre-school children. Currently, one meets in Beeston on a Monday morning and one in St Ann's on a Thursday morning, both term time only. It is a great place where children can play and learn and parents have the opportunity for adult conversation and to discuss parenting.
Nottingham Nightstop – requires volunteer hosts and drivers. Hosts are required to provide availability at the beginning of each month, but commitment is flexible. You might want to be available one night a month or one night a week, it's up to you. Drivers will similarly be called on as and when needed.
Operation Rudolph – please look out for notices in church in October/November.
Rally - requires volunteers to help prepare and serve food. This is a once every three week commitment on either a Tuesday or Wednesday night.
