Working in the community

SHCF seeks to offer support in the South Hams by way of involvement in various social initiatives.

Christians Against Poverty                                    

SHCF is committed to continue being part of the local CAP work and supports the work of this inter-church initiative financially and through prayer. There are a number of members of the fellowship who have been actively involved through being part of the South Hams CAP leadership team, by being a Debt Coach or a Befriender.

Apart from regular monthly support for the Centre the fellowship raised money for the Christmas Hamper appeal when the centre was able to distribute a number of excellent hampers to needy families and individuals, and offered articles such as furniture and electrical goods to those in need.
