Engagement in our community
In Matthew 25:40 Jesus said that "whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me’'
Homelessness and poverty exist on our doorstep here in Redhill and our local area. It can happen to anyone: young or old; whether you’re single or a family. Many working people in our area are living on a financial knife-edge and can be tipped over by an unexpected car repair or appliance breakdown.
Christians from across all the different churches in Redhill and Reigate work together to address the needs of homeless, disadvantaged and marginalised people in our area.
You can donate foodstuffs, toiletries etc. to the Food Bank throughout the year.
To support the Redhill Foodbank, which runs from St Matthew's Church, or to find out more about joining the volunteer team, please see current guidance on their website.
Renewed Hope Trust (runs Drop In and Winter Night Shelter sessions)
Renewed Hope is a charity which exists to provide practical solutions and emotional support to the homeless, vulnerable and isolated of East Surrey. They work all year round to provide direct support to our clients responding to their specific needs regardless of how complex their situation.
See their website for how you can be involved.
