The HOPE Project
This year the Hope Project is looking to expand it’s ‘Hope Outdoors’ service. Hope Outdoors undertakes to help with practical work around the outside of homes of people who are struggling to maintain those areas. During the period 2014-2015 the Hope Project has spent over £4,300 supplying people with brand new white goods and furniture. It is the vision of Clare Parr, who wants to show in a practical way the goodness of God to those deprived of resources. The Hope Project is a non-profit making organisation committed to providing help and quality household equipment to individuals & families.

CAP Money Management
Christians Against Poverty is a national, award-winning initiative, the courses are designed to help people take control of their finances, and then stay in control. Within the Church there are a number of people available to work with anyone who wants practical help with money management.
As a Church we are involved in the Penzance Food Bank. The Food Bank aims to provide tinned and non-perishable dried goods for anyone who has been referred to the Food Bank by local authority bodies. Those who qualify are then given a voucher which entitles them to food sufficient for a 7 day period.
The Breakfast Project
In conjuction with Churches Together in Penzance, we also provide food for the Breakfast Project for the homeless.
Open The Book Programme
This is a national initiative with the aim that every primary school child should hear 90 bible stories during their 3 years at primary school, we are delighted to be able to participate in this programme and look forward to being more involved as the initiative develops.
We are also involved with the Penzance Street Pastors initiative, which is manned by people from Churches all over the town. This operates on a Saturday night from 10pm into the early hours of Sunday morning. If you are interested in becoming involved as a volunteer please contact Karen Anderson on: 01736 333014 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Mission Partnership into the Democratic Republic of Congo
Working in partnership with Pastor Willy Tshipamba and his Church in the DRC, we have the exciting opportunity of being involved in short-term mission projects. As well as people being able to go out to the DRC to give practical support where appropriate, our Sunday School children raise money for the Nursery and Primary Schools run by Pastor Willy’s Church. If you would like to donate to this please ring the Church Office on: 01736 369616.
The following are a selection of the groups we have functioning in our church programme:
Provide an opportunity to encounter God through scripture, praise, worship, prayer and the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Once a month the “CONNECT Group” takes place, this is an evening designed for us to connect to one another as we connect to God’s word.
Accountable, intentional relationships with one another. These small groups are designed to encourage and empower one another in our life of faith in Christ.
Weekly rehearsal for the musicians.
