Asylum Seeker Ministry
We support a number of asylum seekers who attend our church, through English lessons, providing clothes, use of the church kitchen to make hot meals, and pastoral support.
Contact Pastor Khatereh for more information.
TransformShoreditch was established in 2016 to partner with TransformUK in delivering our mission to demonstrate God’s love to those in need. We work with the whole community but focus on projects specific to those who are homeless or vulnerably housed, young people facing barriers to their education and those who are elderly and isolated.
TransformUK aims to bring transformational love to the poorest parts of the UK. Together we believe love can transform every individual and the communities they are in, no matter what circumstances and challenges they face. We deliver a range of youth and community projects, education programmes and a variety of social enterprises – check out our own TransformCoffee promoted by Anthony Joshua!
Education Intervention Programme
We partner with secondary schools, local authorities and pupil referral units across London to support some of the most disadvantaged and disengaged young people.
Our on site alternative education provision focuses on using creative arts and community work to achieve qualifications. We also run a range of coaching and mentoring interventions on a 1:1 basis with students in school and specific group work programmes.
TransformCoffee is our newly launched social enterprise to raise funds to help us increase our positive impact in our local community through our projects and programmes.
Roasted in partnership with NotesCoffee this is delicious Grade A coffee with a conscience!
As part of a music project with the London Mayor’s Young Londoners Fund and a crowdfunding campaign, we kitted out a state of the art recording studio.
We hire out the studio to help generate funds towards our projects, as well as record, produce and release our own content… here we come iTunes number 1!
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. The next training starts in October 2022.
