Community Involvement Programmes
Community Outreach at Shoreditch Tab
We run a variety of community activities, in partnership with TransformShoreditch, serving children, families, young people, vulnerable adults and asylum seekers. To get involved or find out more, contact Louise at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Asylum Seeker Ministry
Our church is privileged to include a thriving community of people seeking asylum in the UK. We support them through fellowship, worship services and Bible study in Farsi, providing clothes, use of the church kitchen to make hot meals, and pastoral support.
Contact Pastor Khatereh for more information.
Tower Hamlets Street Pastors
The Tower Hamlets Street Pastors are a committed group of caring, trained volunteers from surrounding churches who have a heart for their local community.
We walk the streets around Brick Lane and Shoreditch on a Friday evening between 10:00pm to 2:00am to care for, listen to and help people, whether it is to give flip-flops to young ladies too drunk to walk in their high heels, or to give out warm hats, gloves or thermal blankets to those sleeping rough. We engage in casual or more meaningful conversations with people, diffuse potentially aggressive situations, look out for people who are lost, drunk or distressed, and sometimes signpost people to appropriate help agencies.
We are part of a national network of trained Street Pastors who have a heart to help and care for people out and about on the streets at night. If you ever come across us on patrol, please stop and say hi. We would love to meet you.
If you are interested in joining our growing team, contact Iain by clicking the link below for more information about training to volunteer with us.
