Partnerships

“‘In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now.”

Philippians 1:4-5

Our starting point for sharing the love and generosity of Jesus is the community in which we are situated – TN10.

We work in partnership with the following organisations, as we seek to restore God’s heart for our community.

Partnerships

TACT

The Tonbridge Area Churches Together are a group of churches of different denominations from across Tonbridge who work together to provide town wide events, training and services to our local community.  You can find our teams all over the town, on Saturdays a group gather on Tonbridge high street to offer prayer in the form of the nationwide initiative ‘Healing on the Streets’ as well as numerous coffee mornings, town wide services along with ‘Catch the Wave’ (our town wide youth event).

Tonbridge Counselling Service

A professional counselling service for Tonbridge and the surrounding areas offering skilled, compassionate therapy at an affordable cost. Sometimes circumstances and situations can seem to prevent us from living life as we would like to. For others, events that happened in the past, painful circumstances in the present or fears about the future seem to prevent us from moving on and living life to the full.

We can help you to talk things through and move forward.
