Christians Together in Mission

Type: Support service
Together in Mission grew out of discussions between local Christians and Church leaders about ways we could better serve our local communities of Burghfield, Burghfield Common, Sulhamstead Mortimer and adjacent parishes. We seek to provide opportunities for Christians to become involved with projects/services that strengthen community and support vulnerable people.

Following an exhaustive local community survey we have developed over the years a Community Café in Burghfield Common based in the Methodist Church Hall (Café B) which is open Monday morning and lunchtime and Wednesday morning, serving coffee, tea and snacks, which has a weekly footfall of about 50 clients. The village does not have another suitable meeting point

The second service is a Befriending Service with approximately 50 clients who are isolated and lonely matched to volunteer visitors who see or are in contact with their clients at least weekly.

Then we have a team of School Pastors who patrol our local Secondary School at lunchtimes twice a week (Partnering Ascension Trust).

Each service has a part-time coordinator and a team of volunters from the locality.

The charity has a strong Christian Ethos, and is run by a team of voluntary Trustees. We seek to be a Christian presence, and are not explicitly evangelistic.
