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 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.
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.
Food Bank The need for Food Bank is increasing as you might know or expect, so your donations are as appreciated now as they have ever been. Bins are located in Costa, main Co-op and Iceland, all in central Alnwick.

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.
