Our heart is to work in partnership wherever and whenever we can

We recognise that we can't do everything ourselves. In Luke 5, when there were too many fish for one boat, Jesus' disciples called over their partners, to help them with the task they set out to achieve.

In order to see our goals and vision achieved, we partner with some great organisations, please take time to have a look at them below:

  • CAP

    CAP support people that are struggling to climb out of the grip of debt. We support one of their debt centres which aims to bring relief to people who are struggling with their finances. It's great to partner with Mosaic Church in this ministry.

  • Kids Klub

    Kidz Klub works around the city of Leeds to share God's love and message with the most vulnerable unreached children, their families and communities. They run their central Klub from BCC on Monday evenings.

  • Teen Challenge UK

    Teen Challenge actively seek to offer support, love and care to those who are struggling with addiction. Through God's power, they aim to lift this burden from those suffering from drug and alcohol abuse. Teen Challenge help run The Welcome on Saturdays.

  • Women Arise

    Women Arise run ESOL and wellbeing classes that are a vital tool in helping those new to the UK settle and integrate into our society. We love to host these classes and partner with Women Arise to help the ladies learn English!

  • Zarach

    Zarach help people rise out of poverty. They support families in Leeds who are facing hardships, struggling to afford the neccessities such as food and beds. We partner with them to put on the Food Club.

  • Spear
