We believe in partnering with others wherever possible; sharing, encouraging and collaborating to see more good things happen as a result! We have both mission partners - people and projects we support - and church partners - churches we're involved supporting and helping to develop.
The Good Soil Project, based at Top Barn Farm, Worcester, invests in people's lives and helps them to discover their potential. In our society there are many people who struggle with life for a variety of reasons including unemployment, homelessness, addiction, crime and mental health. Those that find themselves in these situations can often feel marginalised and trapped. With Christian values at the heart of Good Soil, their vision is to see these lives transformed releasing potential and hope.

They seek to listen to, care for and engage with all those they meet and provide a positive presence, which often involves practical support to those who need it.
