We are a church that loves the city of Portsmouth! We meet on Sunday’s in the Portsea area of the city, it’s an area full of rich history, as well as modern high rises and the Gunwharf Quays shopping district. Despite the development, Portsea is one of the poorest areas of the city too. We believe Portsea should feel the benefit of having a large vibrant multi-cultural church meeting on their ‘patch’. In addition to prayer, supporting the John Pounds Centre and supporting other initiatives in the area, the students get together for a week of serving Portsea at the end of their exams, at the end of May.
This year over 25 students, volunteers and staff from the church cleared gardens, picked litter, and got to know the residents. We are praying that our opportunities to serve will continue to grow in coming years!
