Changing Lives, Transforming Communities
Equipping churches for social action



We see a Foundation …

  • We see a vibrant, outreach programme where services grow as greater needs are identified. We see a range of responses that provide hope, accessibility to friendship and solutions in which all play their part.
  • We see a dynamic process through which people love their city and do all they can to seek the prosperity of its most vulnerable residents.  We see a diverse resource of staff and volunteers united in one purpose; meeting needs, loving the unloved, helping the hurting and offering hope where there is despair. We see a leadership leading with integrity and boldness.  Standing still is not an option or standing around for society‘s attitude to change is not in the plan.
  • We see our staff and volunteers walking in confidence, but living in humility, knowing that without faith they can do nothing. We see them “Committed to Excellence” and developing a network whose eye is on the ends of the earth, while realising that the ends of the earth starts at their end. We see people who don’t forget where they came from and long to reach out to others. We see the men finding their self-esteem and women their opportunities.
  • All will accept no one is perfect and so give room for the process of change.

We see a Foundation …

  • We see each person’s success being celebrated and the use of this as a step into overcoming disabling weaknesses. We see a growing team of staff working with a much larger volunteer force, working together for solutions.
  • We see outreach projects filled with answers for life’s crises and where there is no answer, a heart that feels and arms that embrace. We see a service that speaks in a language that we can all understand.
  • We see a Foundation, whose financial life becomes a river, giving more away than it spends on its own needs. We see a Foundation that follows the examples and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, believing in miracles, knowing that the power behind them is greater than the task ahead. We see this Foundation working hand in hand with other agencies that are also committed to make a real difference to those who are vulnerable.  Offering help to all and any, regardless of age, colour, creed, politics or sexual preference.
  • We see a way forward. Do you see it too?
