We are an ecumenical organisation and work with all sectors of the Christian faith. We are members of Local Churches Together and are part of the Christian Agency Network working with organisations such as KCAH, Street Pastors, Well Care and Release.
By working in partnership, we have seen many worthwhile projects thrive. For example, Basement (the Kingston Youth Cafe) is a joint project between ourselves, John Bunyan Church and Oxygen, a local youth charity. It provides a safe alcohol-free space for young people to enjoy both performing and listening to live music.
Sleep Easy is an annual fundraising event that we run in conjunction with Kingston Churched Action on Homelessness. In January 2011 it raised over £21,000. YMCA Wimbledon has strong links with Holy Trinity Church and they will be working with us as part of Sleep Easy 201 to launch the event in Wimbledon.
We also produce a newsletter called Churches Connect specially for the local church community.
