Your Community

Already, UK churches are the largest provider of social care.

That includes half the toddler and parent groups, the biggest network of debt counselors and feeding 100,000 people a year through food banks.

You may want to be part of that. Or to explore some of the many other ways to serve. This includes

  • Volunteering – where there’s much you can do to, especially at a time of cuts in the budgets of Social Services.
  • A very special need is to serve those who are lonely – often isolated from friends and family and needing simple practical help and a listening ear.

Do you need volunteer help with a community initiative? What not share it with our AfterWorkNet Facebook group.

The word retirement is not even in the Bible. What is taught in scripture is transition. There is nothing that says you work most of your life and then get to be selfish for the next 20 years"
