As a church we are involved with and support different organisations both in the local area and around the world, here are a few of them.
Cardiff Concern is a charitable counselling service run by Christians. At present, we have 30 volunteer counsellors who have been professionally trained in counselling, who give their time and skills to the service.
CAP are passionate about releasing people in our nation from a life sentence of debt, poverty and their causes. Through CAPs services, which are all run through local churches, they are tackling poverty head on. Our vision is to bring freedom and good news to people in every community through 1,000 CAP projects by 2021.
We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.
Harvest Books & Crafts was set up in 1984 by a group of Christians from different Churches in the Valleys town of Pontypridd South Wales. The shop, in the centre of the town, sells Christian books, Fairtrade crafts and also for counselling and reaching out to the community
IFES is a movement of students sharing and living out the good news of Jesus Christ - Locally, Nationally and Globally. They seek to develop leaders who engage the university and impact the world. IFES connects more than half a million students in over 160 countries.
Open Doors supports persecuted Christians with Bibles, Christian materials, training, livelihood skills, advocacy - and in a whole host of other ways - so that they know they are not forgotten and can stand strong to serve their communities. So that they can give life.
They also seek to mobilise the church in the UK & Ireland not only to serve Christians living under religious persecution but also to learn from them what it means to be a disciple of Jesus
PONT’s aim as a charity is to build a new model of development based on direct personal relationships between communities here in Wales and communities in Uganda. The twinning of Pontypridd town and Rhondda Cynon Taf borough with Mbale town and district in Uganda offers PONT a launchpad to achieve its aim. Presently there are 13 different categories of partnership links between both communities whose purpose is to improve the lives of the people of Mbale.
Rhondda Cynon Taff, the local Police and local churches have setup up a Street Pastors Scheme in Pontypridd. Teams of Christians go out on the streets in Pontypridd on a Friday or Saturday night to be a support/help to any people who need it.
Poverty does more than exhaust, starve, trap and kill people. It destroys their sense of worth, limits their horizons, robs people of the chance to reach their full potential. Tearfund’s call is to follow Jesus where the need is greatest. We long for new life and a new sense of worth for people. We do whatever it takes to end poverty and rebuild poor communities. We work through local churches, because they're Jesus’ body on earth, ready to care for the whole person - and the whole community - inside and out.
