SERVE DAY

What could happen if we all got together to SERVE the south west through the local church?...

We're encouraging local churches to think of and plan for social action projects in their local communities that could be done in a day: litter sweeps, prayer walks, garden clearance, painting projects, beach cleaning, school refurbishment, care homes visiting, playgrounds, whatever, wherever. In due course we'll provide some t-shirts and other branding, you find the project, let us know what you're planning and let’s get to work! Imagine if a few thousand Christians got together to bless the South West for a day.
