Welcome to the Parish of Teme Valley North, set in the beautiful Teme Valley. If you are new here, it’s great to see you! Please follow this link to find out more about us.
In many churches that I visit there is a box next to a sign saying, ‘For the Food Bank – Thank You’. I hear about numerous lunch groups, ‘knit and natter’ sessions and after school clubs, and once I saw a poster that read ‘Down in the mouth? Join our Loneliness Group for a faith lift’. I still wonder whether the group is thriving.
Across the Diocese of Worcester, social action and community outreach is flourishing. The results are just in from a survey conducted at the end of 2017 which asked about how our churches are involved with activities such as food banks, night shelters, community cafes, debt advice, breakfast clubs and youth groups. 220 of our churches responded and between us we are involved in approximately 500 projects that directly support other people.
