As well as partnering with a whole range of brilliant people and initiatives, we have four key local projects through which we seek to make a real difference to our city.
In 2012 we founded the Worcester Foodbank, part of the Trussell Trust network of food banks across the UK. Since then over 10,000 people in crisis have received emergency food supplies. This massive response to need in our city rides entirely on the efforts of volunteers and the generosity of all who donate food and resources.
To find out more, including how to volunteer and/or donate visit the Worcester Foodbank website.

All Saints hosts the Christians Against Poverty (CAP) debt centre for Worcester. We offer a free debt counselling service to help people who are weighed down by debt. Our local debt coaches visit clients in their own homes and provide long term support until they become debt free. Our service is available to anyone regardless of faith, gender, age or background.
If you, or someone you know, is weighed down by debt please phone CAP’s freephone number 0800 328 0006 to make an appointment. CAP’s dedicated team will be able to help.
Volunteering with our support team is easy and flexible. It can be as simple as giving someone a lift to church, baking a birthday cake or mowing the lawn. Or accompanying our debt coaches to regular visits, organising social and evangelistic events for CAP clients or offering regular prayer support. For all queries about supporting Worcester CAP, please contact Fiona Jones.

Hope for Justice
We host a Hope for Justice abolition group that seeks to raise local awareness, fundraise, and partner with local authorities around issues of human trafficking and modern day slavery. Our group is part of the wider Hope for Justice movement that offers an international and holistic response seeking to end human trafficking and slavery in our generation. For more information, email the team here.

Home for Good
We are networked with Home for Good a charity which aims to make adoption and fostering a significant part of the life and ministry of the Church in the UK. With Home for Good we raise awareness of the need for foster and adoptive parents, we encourage families to provide loving homes for the children in care, and we all play our part in being a welcoming and supportive community for those undertaking this adventure.
