COMPASSION

Our Vision

Joining in with God’s transformation of lives

We are an Isaiah 61 church on mission to bring life to our city, to bring hope to the hopeless, bind up the broken-hearted, and set the captives free! Keep reading to see the ways we are being a compassionate church and how you can get involved. We rely on a great team of volunteers to be able to run our projects, so if you’d like to help, we’d love to hear from you. And if you’re in need, we’d love to help – just get in touch with us below.

MERCY STREET

Mercy Street is a homegrown V61 ministry that reaches out to people experiencing homelessness. When we hit the streets, we practice “direct action”. This means we do what we can materially and spiritually at that point in time to alleviate suffering. We currently serve people in Battersea, Balham and Croyden and hope to do more over time.

Please get in touch if you’d like to volunteer. Training will be provided as you go out with us. You can decide after going out once if you’d like to head out regularly with us [currently once every two months].

God loves the poor.

Sign up to the next outing lower down this page! or message us with any questions you have.

THE HUB
GATHER / CONNECT / BELONG

The Hub is a dream created during lockdown. It’s a gathering place where people from different backgrounds can come together and be known. It’s community. If you are looking for a place to belong, then stop by for a chat and a good cup of coffee every Monday from 11am-2pm. We can’t wait to meet you!

Emergency compassion fund

In Acts 4, we see a beautiful picture of the radically generous early church. What would it look like if we could say of our church community that there are no needy people among us? In this time of continuing financial difficulty for so many, we would love to meet your need. Please get in contact below and we’ll be in touch.
