A new part of our General RE for 6th Form course includes an element of 'Faith in Action'. Students are asked to complete one hour a week of voluntary work either in or outside of school.
As part of this we invited Church of England Pastor from St Luke's in Cranham. He is contactable, as he offered, through the church website <here>.
He spoke about a few projects he was involved in and you may want to find out more:
- Christians Against Poverty - providing debt relief to anyone who needs it
- Above Us Only Sky - a homeless charity that provides a range of services including sleeping bags
- Hope 4 Havering - an organisation that provides shelters for the homeless around Havering
- Harold Hill Food Bank - providing emergency food for people in crisis
It's quite amazing to see the range of organisations working in our local area and shows the great needs of nearby communities.
Do we do enough to support local charities? Do you think that enough Christians 'walk the walk'? What could be done to encourage more people to put their 'faith in action'?
