The Well is very active in the local community, throughout the year.
For instance, we hold a Coffee Morning from 10am to 11:30am on the third Saturday of each month (check our diary page in case anything changes!) and that's an excellent place to meet people, enjoy a hot drink, buy local produce, books or bric-a-brac - and the Coffee Morning always raises funds for charity.
We support a different charity each month at our Coffee Mornings, and one which is dear to our heart is Colchester Food Bank. Our members often save and donate food for the needy around our town, and we make a special effort at harvest time, when the Church is decorated with lots of produce which is on the Food Bank's list of most wanted items. They are always delighted to receive the goods, on behalf of their clients who are, of course, even more delighted to receive them.
Another Charity we support is Operation Christmas Child, run by Samaritan's Purse. Each autumn our members buy small practical gifts and fill shoeboxes which will be received by children in countries where there is extreme poverty. This is probably the only Christmas present they will receive, so this simple gift from us is such a valuable one to receive. Here are some of the shoeboxes being collected for despatch.
Christmas is, of course, important to us, and is just one of the festivals whole families enjoy at The Well. Every service is a celebration of God's love for us in Jesus - come along at 10:30 on a Sunday, or any of our other events, and enjoy your time with us!
