The Glen Ministry started in 2008. Originally it was set up to meet the needs of rough sleepers in the local park. . Over time the project has adapted to meet the changing face of hardship in our local community . We now primarily give “ one off “ assistance grants for community members who are in crisis. This can be for a number of reasons such as zero hours contracts, relationship breakdowns and benefits issues.
We operate on a “ pathway” basis- proving emergency assistances whist also directing those community members to other agencies for longer term help to try and prevent crisis in the future.
GM is operated and funded by the GMC congregation.
