How to get involved

Supporting others
There are many opportunities to serve in the church from welcoming and stewarding at services, to reading in services, to practical care of the buildings. There are also ministry opportunities when people have settled into the church family and when we have had an opportunity to look at gifts and opportunities.         

South Room Community Hub

We are now open for 'drop-in' visitors .  We offer free Wi-Fi, computer and printer access to help people searching for jobs or applying for benefits and is now open on Tuesdays and Fridays between 10.00am -12.00 noon.

If you need specific help you can also make an appointment to use a computer, or to get help with job search or with applying for benefits.  Please contact the Parish Office on 01227 749762 and leave your name and a contact number or email: - office@parishofhernebay.org.uk and we will do our best to help.

Our Bay Ignite team work closely with the South Room.

The South Room is also now open on Tuesdays and Fridays from 10.00am-12.00noon for anyone in urgent need of food.  We can provide a few days dry and tinned goods if you are struggling to feed yourself or your family.
