SOUL in the City

Previously known as SOUL Streets, SOUL in the City is our city outreach which takes place at St Stephens Church next to Chantry Place. Those who attend can access a free meal as well as additional support and advice from our team. These nights happen every Wednesday 6:30 until 7:30.

Wellbeing Wednesday

Every Wednesday, the Wellbeing group takes place inside SOUL Church. We offer attendees a free lunch and a free bag from the Social Supermarket, as well as small groups where individuals can find support and explore strategies to improve their overall wellbeing.

SOUL Restart

SOUL ReStart offers a course covering a wide range of work-related topics from ‘Finding Your Motivation’ to ‘Writing CVs and Applications.’ It is completely free and is open to all those individuals who are seeking employment. Once the course is completed regular support sessions will be offered to course members whilst they continue to search for employment.

Through our partnership with CAP (Christians Against Poverty) we aim to show God’s love in action by providing sustainable poverty relief through debt counselling, advice and practical help. CAP’s unique ‘hands on’ approach empowers people to help themselves out of poverty and be released from the fear, oppression and worry generated by overwhelming debts.

If you would like to participate contact steveginn@capjobclubs.org to register for the course.

Vision Rescue, Mumbai, India

There are around 300,000 children living on the streets of Mumbai – and even with all the help out there, it’s thought only 15,000 of them receive any kind of care and attention. Vision Rescue run four buses in the city, giving out food and non-formal education to 500 street children. They also have medical and dental vans, run outreach teams who offer counselling and support to the marginalised and provide shelter and a safe place for trafficked girls. 

Nehemiah Trust, Karachi, Pakistan

Aimed at ‘helping the helpless’, the trust provides resources and facilities to improve the lives, health and future of the underprivileged. They promote physical, psychological and socio-economic education for those in need, helping them turn their lives around. They run schooling programmes, health clinics, support those in poverty and generally look out for those who don’t easily find help through public or private sectors. 

Philippine Outreach Centre, Philippines (POC)

POC began in 1983 and has grown hugely ever since. Helping prisoners and their families, it offers shelter, food, education and a church community for the children of those in jail and those living in poverty, as well as for the ex-prisoners at the end of their sentence. Former inmates work at POC to visit those currently in prison, helping follow up cases, attending court hearings and sharing the hope of Jesus. 

Tembaletu, South Africa

A school for ‘differently abled’ children, founded in 1974. Over the years it’s grown to 19 classrooms with offices, a medical bay and therapy rooms and is one of only four special needs schools in the Western Cape. They currently have over 180 students enrolled. Our giving helps fund school buses to transport the children between home and school each day, books, equipment and new technology. 

Compassion, Togo

We link people in the church with children living in poverty. Each sponsor helps provide for their child’s education, health checks and the care of a local church-based Compassion project. There’s no fix to global poverty but this programme does change lives, giving children a brighter future and impacting their families and community too.

Hope for Justice, Global

We exist to bring an end to modern slavery by preventing exploitation, rescuing victims, restoring lives and reforming society. Across five continents, Hope for Justice operates a proven multi-disciplinary model based on years of combined experience.

Israel, Tel Aviv

As a local church, based in Tel Aviv, we are a community of everyday people

Currently, the majority of our support goes toward a local organisation helping refugee families and children with basic health, hygiene and food packages.
