Story

On 6th October 2018, Stewardship helped us share 5 appeals for larger needs than we run through our normal website.

These needs ranged from £500 to £1,000.  We got an amazing response and that led to the establishment of Acts 435's Larger Gifts Fund.

Advocates can apply to Acts 435 for help with a larger need for someone in their local community where there is no other fund to help them, and the need exceeds those they can post directly onto our website (currently capped at £120).

If you would like to help resource this, and know that you are making a big difference, please support us.

One person we helped by paying off a £1,250 housing benefit overpayment that was weighing her down said this:

"It`s always hard to ask for help, but when you are responsible for a small child you have to do what you need to do. The people who donate to Acts 435 are amazing. You gave me back my faith and my hope. We have a fresh start in our life and now I dare to believe we have a good future!"



Acts 435

Acts 435 is a website that directly links those wanting to give with those needing their help. The church provides a physical, face-to-face meeting point where church volunteers meet with those in need and post these needs on the website. Acts 435 focuses on providing specific practical help for those people locally known through the church to be in need in small but significant ways. For example: To school with pride! With the help of a donation of £95 from Acts 435 a young lady can now walk with her friends around school without unkind jibes from her classmates. Her uniform now fits and is the correct colour for her age. 100% of your donation goes to help a person in need, such as those squeezed by the recession and government cuts, quickly, efficiently and directly. It is a contemporary way to give to local people in need.
