Caring for our community
Today our lives are run at such a hectic speed, and often we live in communities with little local extended family.
There is much evidence that healthy relationships, and a sense of personal well-being are core to a healthy society. We seek to play our part in East Reading and Wokingham District in helping support a healthy society underpinned with strong relationships in the family and across the community.
The free support we offer is in a number of specific areas:
- Counselling and listening – Do you have worries and feel you have no-one to turn to? We can provide a listening ear for your personal and relationship problems and counselling to help you find ways of dealing with these problems.
- Debt counselling and budgeting advice – Do you need help in managing your financial situation and/or putting in place a plan to settle your debts? Call us for help in handling your financial affairs.
- Family Fundays - Free school holiday activities around the Woodley area
- Woodley Food Store - This is an emergency Food Store for people in a time of crisis.
We have contacts with many other local support organisations, so if your need does not fall within our support areas, we may be able to put you in touch with another group locally which can help. The Community Activities page lists activities run or supported by local Christian groups. This information is also available on our printable leaflet Comm Activities leaflet v3C.pdf - also available in Word form as Community Activities list 2012.doc. Please download and print as needed.
