Alnwick Baptist Church

Sharing Jesus – words and actions

Community Projects

Once a month, a team from church go to this home in Alnwick and take a service there. This may include a time of singing, a testimony and a thought for the day. It is appreciated by residents and staff alike.

mighty-oaks  Mighty Oaks is a project staffed by volunteers from Christian denominations in the town. Its aim is to give away high quality hot drinks to Alnwick’s late nighters – currently serving between 10pm-1am on Saturday nights in the Market Place – and to demonstrate God’s love in a practical way. We rely on the donations of individuals, churches and local organisations for which we are immensely grateful. We work closely with the local police and have a good relationship with them. The leaflets that we carry are funded by TES (www.tes.org.uk) and our milk each week is generously provided by Willowtree Service Station, Alnwick.

As a church, we are strong supporters of Christians Against Poverty and have our own centre with a manager. We also have a large number of support workers who are all volunteers.

CAP: Each year we look for the opportunity to sponsor an event to support CAP's work. Are you participating in a marathon, half-marathon, Lake Swims, cycling etc etc and would like to adopt CAP as your chosen charity? If so please contact Chris Friend at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Having made contact with the community centre in 2011 and established the needs of the centre, a number of volunteers are now helping out by way of support for after schools clubs, administration and leaflet drops. This support for the Manager and her team has been well received and we look forward to an ongoing strong relationship.

As a church, along with other churches and organisations in the town we are partnering to help individuals and families who are on or below the poverty line. We do this through using agencies such as CAB for referrals and provide food parcels through the Salvation Army Shop acting as the 'frontline' as well as making sure that Surestart Childrens Centre and Gallery Youth are provided for. Currently the food store is based at ABC but we are hoping to find something more suitable and permanent in due course. There is a big and enthusiastic team of volunteers who help sort, pack and deliver parcels. A number of churches also hold emergency parcels so that local need can be met by local people.

The CAP Money Course is a revolutionary money management course that teaches people budgeting skills and a simple, cash-based system that really works.

This course will help anyone to get more in control of their finances, so they can save, give and prevent debt. The CAP Money Course is a course devised by the award winning debt counselling charity, Christians Against Poverty.

In February 2016 we took CAP Kids into a local school and delivered this tailored budgeting programme to the year 5 pupils - 50 in total.
