Shanana's job is to liase with the various groups in the area, supporting them in being a blessing and facilitate them as they require. She also oversees the congregation's work and encourages and helps the volunteers who keep these things running. She also meets up with people one-to-one to help meet phyisical, emotional, and spiritual needs.
The congregation has had a community cafe running since 2007 and a toddler group since 2008. These are both completely free of charge and run to be a blessing to the community. More recently, we have set up an Over-50's group, to help build friendships between isolated older people. As the work takes hold, we hope that the blessings we can share increase and spread to more local people.
