Bed pushers

The bed pushers team

The bed pushers team

We are one of 7 teams of volunteers, mostly from Plymouth churches, serving Derriford Hospital (1400 beds!) each weekend.  Our purpose is to support the work of the hospital Chaplains and enable patients to get to the services in the chapel.  We have had the privilege of seeing God use us in praying for people and supporting them at what are often very difficult times.

FoodBank

Collecting for Foodbank

Collecting for Foodbank

Local people donate non-perishable and long-life food to our Foodbank in Liskeard, where it is collated and made up into food boxes that will support one person for 3 days. We are a local collection point. The Foodbank gives the boxes of food to clients referred to us by local care professionals, like the Social Services, when they encounter individuals and families with no immediate source of money to feed themselves or their children.

Gideons International

GCCGideons

Grace Gideons

The Gideons International exists with the aim of winning men, women and young people for the Lord Jesus Christ by three methods – the association of Christian business and professional ment and their wives for service, personal testimony and personal work by all members, and placing and presenting Bibles and Testaments in the main streams of life.
Beginning in 1903 in Wisconsin, USA, it is now active in 194 countries worldwide through a network of small local groups known as branches formed from Gideon Members, supported in prayer by Gideon Friends. Our own local group is the South-east Cornwall branch, comprising 15 members and about 110 friends. Together, we aim to offer testaments to all year 7 pupils throughout the district, and make bibles available to every hotel, B & B, hospital, college, surgery, etc. For more information, contact Eric Cowan
