Other ways you can support

Give

Urban Saints is a charity. Your financial gifts to Urban Saints Westbrook ensure we can continue to offer a residential centre where hundreds of groups can come and experience the love of God through teaching, games, and the building of genuine friendships.

The church is making a huge difference but we know that 50% of all local churches have no provision for children and young people at all. A large percentage of these children also do not have the financial means to be able to holiday away from the area that they live in. Being able to go away on a residential can help in so many different areas of life from becoming more independent to learning new and valuable life skills. Urban Saints and its own dedicated centre - Westbrook - are committed to seeing this change… and you can really help us.

Your gift would enable Urban Saints - Westbrook to:

  • continue to be able to provide a place for young people to come and meet with God.
  • continue the on-going task of upkeep on the centre.
  • provide new and improved facilities for the centre.
  • give the much needed possibility of employing new staff and provide jobs for local people.

We can't all be youth workers but we can all play our part to help children and young people fulfil their God-given potential.
