Emmanuel Christian Centre

We are a church based in the south of the city of Lincoln. We are very community focused, and many of our projects and activities are geared towards what is needed in our area. We have recently taken on a building that we have changed into a community centre, and through this project we aim to provide a service for every different type of person in our surrounding area. Because of the cheap housing in our ward, we predominantly have a high number of single parent families, older people living on their own, and a growing number of Polish families and people from other countries. We are rated in the top 10 -20% of the most deprived areas with regards to living environment,income, employment, and crime.

Our aim is to bring our community together, eliminating isolation, imparting advice and help, and creating a great environment to run groups for all ages; the start of which will be meals for the elderly, homework clubs for the kids, drop in times for the young people and helpful sessions for parents. Being part of a city also poses the problem of homelessness, and we aim to meet this need in a practical way such as meals, clothing, wash facilities and so on. As a church we have been active in this area for years, and we are wanting to partner with funders who will be able to assist us in this in order to make a greater difference in people's lives.
