Generosity at The Well

Generosity comes in many shapes and sizes. Everyday around the UK people give hours of their time, they give their passions and guts by volunteering, they share their talents to make a positive difference. June 2018 saw publication of a report (click here to read it) outlining that in Sheffield Christians and other faith groups contribute 1.,240,000 hours of volunteer time to our city, worth about £11.2m a year!

People from The Well volunteer in lots of projects around Sheffield - particularly to serve our city's poor and vulnerable. Here's a few of the projects our people are involved in serving:

  • S6 Foodbank - emergency food 
  • Light of Hope - helping Sheffield's sex workers
  • Golddigger Trust - Empowering teenagers in identity
  • Good News Cafe - Saturday morning breakfast at Sheffield Cathedral Archer Project
  • Doncaster Prison - visiting and meeting prisoners weekly
  • Open Hands - Housing for destitute asylum seekers
  • Restore - Empowering former addicts and homeless to live full lives
  • Chocolate Box - Community for vulnerable women in Sheffield

Our donations to Good causes 2018

We love to give our money away and we aim to tithe (10%) our income as a church to good causes. An experienced team help to research and propose where we give our money to make an impact. Here's some of the projects and people we will give this year's money to:

Open Doors - We have become a partner church with Open Doors to stand in solidarity with the persecuted church around the world.

Snowdrop - A Sheffield charity provideing long-term support to empower survivors of human trafficking. 

Sunergos - Developing world consultancy which empowers indigenous organisations to make a bigger impact. 

Restore - a local ministry making a big impact on the poor and vulnerable based at NCS church. Several of our people volunteer in their projects.

FSCI - We were really impressed with Chris Mold when he came to speak on Compassion Sunday and his charity in Eastern Europe to prevent human trafficking resonates with us. 

Golddigger Trust - Doing great work with vulnerable young people in South Yorkshire. 

Mediar - A Christian relief organisation working with some of the worlds most vulnerable. They have a current fundraising campaign for DRCongo, one of the world’s forgotten crises.

CPA - Christian partnerships in Africa a small charity focusing on education in Kenya, Ethiopia and Malawi. 

Give to The Well

Christians are generous in response to God's generosity to us. This goes for money too. How a person spends their spare cash is often a barometer of their heart. 

You can be part of the story of The Well by making a financial donation. We encourage our regular members to move from feeling like 'visiting friends' to become 'family' by supporting the church with regular gifts. You can read a short booklet explaining this here

We’re not asking for your money! We’re inviting you into an opportunity to be part of the journey and to partner with The Well in creating a community of faith and love which furthers the kingdom of God in our generation, our city and the nations. We believe in what’s happening through The Well. Do you?
