At KXC we want to be a church that recklessly gives ourselves away to the people of Kings Cross and beyond. Whether it’s cooking a meal for ex-offenders at Only Connect, helping to decorate the flat of a vulnerable older person, playing a concert in a care home, giving away snacks to commuters or baking cakes for neighbours we want serving those around us to be central to what we do as a church. There are a number of charities we partner with locally.
In partnership with the prison chaplaincy, we are able to serve in several ways including Alpha, Sunday Services and Caring for Ex-Offenders. For more information contact Karis Barnard: Karis.Carson@caringforexoffenders.org
