The projects we support in our local community are:
Leek and District Foodbank
We support Leek and District Foodbank in wanting to ensure that no-one in our local community has to go hungry. We have a donation point in the church foyer, encouraging people to make food donations to support the work of the Foodbank.
ASHA North Staffordshire
We support ASHA in helping men, women and children seeking refuge from persecution in North Staffordshire. We support them with financial help, regular food appeals and donations of clothing, toys, bicycles, etc.
One Recovery Staffordshire
We support the work of One Recovery Staffordshire in providing both drugs and alcohol support services. The Russell Street Centre from which services in Leek are provided is owned by the church.
Leek Street Pastors
We support Leek Street Pastors in caring for, listening to and helping people who are out and about on the streets of Leek. Trinity provides accommodation for the Street Pastors, and a number of our members are Street Pastors and Prayer Pastors.
We support Adullam Homes, a charitable organisation that provides vulnerable people with housing and support services. We are Friends of Adullam, and we support them with financial help, as well as making regular donations of household goods.
We support a range of local charities through our Festival Appeals at Easter and Christmas.
In 2017, our Easter Appeal supported Borderland Voices http://borderlandvoices.org.uk/ , a charity promoting mental health through the arts across the Staffordshire Moorlands. Our Christmas Appeal supported the work of Home-Start Staffordshire Moorlands https://www.homestartsm.org.uk/, a charity offering support, friendship and practical help to parents with young children in the Staffordshire Moorlands district.
We support the principles of Totally Locally Leek, aiming to purchase Trinity’s supplies locally wherever possible.
