GROWBABY

WHAT IS GROWBABY?

Growbaby is a compassion project aimed at ensuring babies and children under 5 in our local communities have everything they need for their early years of life. We recognise that the financial impact of having a baby/ young child can be huge and we try to ease the strain for local families by offering all our new/ second hand items entirely free of charge!

WHY DO WE LOVE IT?

We love Growbaby because it shows our community the extravagant love of God in a really practical way. Many families have been completely blown away by our generosity and that we expect nothing in return. Our hope is that families will question why the church would do such a thing and be drawn towards Jesus!

There’s no criteria to meet first – so much of the support offered depends on people fitting a particular mould, Growbaby seeks to serve anyone and everyone who has an under 5!

Growbaby is also building community – bring people together at donation points, sorting nights and online. Together we are building and serving community, all because Jesus did first!

HOW DO I CONNECT AND GET INVOLVED?

PRAYER
Please pray your socks off! Pray that we meet with those in our community that need our help.

VOLUNTEER
