“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter – when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?” ISAIAH 58:6-7
Each year we set aside 5% of our income and allocate it for work with the poor. We also commit 5% of our income from Jubilee Community Centre. Long term, once we are debt free on the building we will commit 100% of building profit to care with the poor.
As well as a general fund for emergency relief, our Jubilee Initiative fund supports the following organisations on a regular basis:
Crawley Open House
St Catherine’s Hospice
Street Life Project in Zambia
Foodbank East Grinstead
Street Pastors East Grinstead
In addition to these organisations we also encourage church members and small groups to think about child sponsorship through Compassion and World Vision.
