Your Community Already, UK churches are the largest provider of social care. That includes half the toddler and parent groups, the biggest network of debt counselors and feeding 100,000 people a year through food banks. You may want to be part of that. Or to explore some of the many other ways to serve. This includes Volunteering – where there’s much you can do to, especially at a time of cuts in the budgets of Social Services. A very special need is to serve those who are lonely – often isolated from friends and family and needing simple practical help and a listening ear.
