At Pier Avenue Baptist Church, we believe that Gospel brings personal transformation and transforms our communities too. As an expression of that we are engaged in a number of community projects to which we welcome everybody, whether you have a faith or not.
A parent / carer and toddler group. Runs on a Monday morning from 9:30 – 11:30. A great place to make new friends. Craft, singing, games and fun for your Tiny Treasure!
The coffee lounge at the front of the Church is open from 9:30 – 12 on Tuesday and Saturday mornings, why not pop in and enjoy a cuppa a cake and a chat? From 12pm – 3pm on Tuesday, we serve soup and a roll.
The Enfold project operates on a Thursday morning from the Welcome Centre at the back of the Church. This project was set up in 2012 to support the homeless and vulnerably housed of our community.
Alongside a cooked breakfast, there is housing support and help available from different agencies. Some of our visitors welcome the opportunity of a shower and a freshen up using our facilities.
The Shed Project
We are currently building a community shed on land at the back of the Welcome Centre. The community shed will serve as a facility for people to engage with crafts, repair work and practical projects that will share skills and knowledge for those who may feel isolated.
Hope house opened its doors in January 2018. Working with partner organizations and investors, we have been able to offer accommodation for people who have been made homeless.
Homelessness is more than a lack of accommodation, it is a lack of community and so, through the Church we offer friendship and support to those who live in Hope House.
We hope this gives you a bit of a flavour for the things that are happening here at Pier Avenue. Why not come along and find out more?
