Part of Kings' vision is to participate in and contribute to our local community.
As well as encouraging and equipping members of the congregation to get involved in their own communities, be that their workplace, sports team, society or neighbourhood, we also run Kings Community Projects. Through these, we are involved in a variety of activities - some regular, some one-off events.
Over the past few years we've renovated a local park, visited elderly and isolated people, run fun days, cleared gardens, run a tots and toddlers group, sung in a local care home, run a youth club for local kids, offered students a hot drink and chance to chat on their way home late, wrapped Christmas presents - all these things, and many more, have been a regular part of our community outreach.
Please see our activities page for a full list of community activities which Kings is involved with.
We'd love to hear from you if you are interested in coming along to or helping out with one of these activities. Please get in touch with Becca Hicks if you'd like to get involved or have any questions.
Remember to check the noticesheets and term guides for details of Saturday Outreach Projects and other events.
Keep up to date with the community team by following the community team blog.
Becca heads up community outreach at Kings. She is a Durham graduate with an MA in Management and leadership training and experience from the Civil Service. More recently she has been working in community development and volunteer coordination.
Alys coordinates evangelism at Kings. She graduated from Durham in 2013, completed the Internship and MT year and is currently studying for an MA in Theology and Ministry alongside her work at Kings.
Claire graduated from Durham University in 2004 in Geography and Environmental Management. She currently volunteers four days a week at Kings, with a focus on mission, evangelism and community.
Community outreach forms a regular part of our Internship programme, and our Interns are regularly involved in visiting the elderly or housebound, running activities for young mums and their pre-school children, singing on the streets, inviting people to church, praying for people and much more.
Many members of Kings, both residents and students, are heavily involved in running and participating in community outreach activities. We encourage everyone at Kings to get involved in our Community Projects - whether this is once a term, once a week or more regularly.
