Our mission is to Love God and Love Loudwater.
We want to demonstrate the love of Jesus by being a source of practical help.
The Love Loudwater initiative was launched in lockdown to help people who are struggling for all sorts of reasons.
We as a church firmly believe that no child should go hungry - whether this be during term time or a holiday period, every child has the right to a full belly. It's with this passion, supported and funded by the generosity of many volunteers and @loveyourneighbour's #LoveChristmasLYN initiative that over the Christmas holidays we provided boxes full of food for families in our local community. Each box of food was accompanied by fresh items and frozen meals, provided by our church community. Our hope is to continue this support for as long as is needed, and hope to partner with local business to provide even more boxes to familes that are in need. We were able to support 125 children from over 60 families during the Christmas break - but we believe there are even more families in need within our community and it is our aim that we scale up this support and continue to be a source of practical help.

For many families, providing their children with supplies for schools can be a difficult process. Its not cheap- and with coronavirus impacting many peoples income, we want to be able to offer support in more ways than just food- we have begun collecting schools supplies for families that need them- this is a wide range of items, but practically anything that a child will need for school- pencil case items, school uniform, laptops and footwear are to name but a few.
Over the Christmas holidays we were able to provide our local primary school (Loudwater Combined) with a selection of items that can be used both in school and to support home learning. This was possible due to the kind donations (both financial and physical items) of our church community.
We have also been able to provide 12 Laptops to Loudwater Combined. This will enable some of their students to access content and home school. We would like to thank SoftCat and The COmmunity Church for making this donation possible.
If you feel you are able to offer support in this area, we are always on the look out for items- be it first or second hand. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know how you wish to support.
As a church, we would like to hear from residents of Loudwater. We want to better understand the needs of people in Loudwater. If you have any thoughts about what we should be doing to help people, please let us know!
Love Loudwater currently has a large team of volunteers comprised of generous people from St Peter’s Church and the local area who are willing to serve people according to their needs.
We want to respond to real material needs in our community and do the best we can to help people.
