Places of Welcome

Kelvedon URC are excited to be getting involved in Places of Welcome, a national initiative seeking to grow a network of local community groups providing their neighbourhoods with places where all people feel safe to connect, belong and contribute. We will be running this between 10.00am and 12.00pm every Tuesday in the halls at the rear of the church. All are welcome, and it’s a great chance for people to meet and talk and be listened to. Tea/coffee and biscuits are available (free of charge) and feel free to stay for as little or as long as you wish. We look forward to meeting you there!

Holdfast Credit Union

We unfortunately no longer have a collection point in Kelvedon URC; the nearest point is now Witham URC. Holdfast offers flexible savings, from as little as £1 per week. Regular savers can have preferential low cost loans, including free loan insurance and a good annual dividend. If you are interested, please visit their website for further information.

Prayer Network

Our Prayer Network continues to operate via email. To ensure that those not on email have access to the network and are kept informed of prayer requests, we have paired those people up with someone who does have access. A network list is available and if anyone has an urgent prayer request, please contact one of those named in the list. We will then circulate the request to all members on the network. The current situation of course does not stop us from praying, and if you have anything that you would like prayer for, please get in touch via our Contact page.

Church charities

We are currently supporting the Norrie Disease Foundation and The Bible Society with any collections taken at special services and fundraising events. Clicking on one of the links below will take you to the charity’s web site.

Benin Christian Support

Whilst we are not financially supporting Benin Christian Support this year, any knitted items (blankets, jumpers, etc.) plus any unwanted gifts or good quality bric-a-brac (suitable for sale at a car boot sale) will still be collected and passed on to Benin, or used to raise funds to support their work. Please contact Janet Andrews for more details.
