What is Compassion?
Our Compassion Ministry is right at the heart of who we are as we seek to see the life and the love of Jesus bless every person and every part of the Lagan Valley.
Starting in November, we will be engaging our church family community in Love Lagan Valley at Christmas. This includes creating gift packs, donating to local businesses, writing handwritten cards, and providing care for those who are alone during the holiday season. More information will follow soon!
If you (or someone you know) is in need…
We would love to help you connect to the support you need.

VOLUNTEER WITH COMPASSION
Throughout the year, we create environments for you to serve our community in the most practical and creative ways. Everyone gets to join in with home and garden makeovers, giving generously, helping people with food and fuel needs, connecting people with partner organisations, and by doing what we do best – conversation and prayer.
Compassion Volunteers give time and skills to help people in their homes or local communities. When we do, we learn about what God’s love looks like in action. We call this “seeing God’s Kingdom come” around us. When the church helps with their hands, it often helps others experience the love and life of Jesus in a meaningful way. Jesus’ shows His love through the church being generous and proactive with honest lives.
There are incredible stories of people finding hope, healing, community, health and even employment and release from debt or fear through the power of the Holy Spirit. It all starts when we help. How amazing that one or two hours of your time could change a life in a remarkable way!
