aims of CHCL
Be a hub for Cradley Heath where people can find
information on different agencies.
Be a meeting point for the people of Cradley Heath and
find common purposes and interests.
Be a place where help can be given on any issue -
financial, health, personal, signposting where necessary
and being a constant contact for those who need it.
Be a place of creativity and re-creation
Be a place where people can chat and find friendship
Be a friendly environment and a place of rest
Be a spiritual place where people find God's Kingdom.
present the way this vision is being realised is through
being available for people in need on an individual basis
and being a distributor for Black Country Foodbank. We are
also open for people to come into the premises for a chat
and a hot drink. We have children's craft activities and we
run excursions, hold special events and accommodate other
groups who want to run classes or one off events. We also
have a quiet room which is used for prayer and for personal
interviews on a regular basis.
have also just opened as a job club and hope to open as a
debt advice centre within the next six months. We would also
like to increase the use of the building by other groups
thereby increasing the communication and 'linking' of
always looking for volunteers so please step through the
door and give us your details if you are interested.
