Charities and Mission
Here at HURC we are committed to sharing God's love with our wider community and world. We do this through service to our local community, links with schools and through charitable giving.
The church members elect three charities which they support for three years, giving each charity an equal percentage of the church's freewill offering for that year. For 2021, the charities are:
1. International China Concern (until 31 Dec 2022)
ICC is a Christian charity working with disabled children and their families in China.
2. Lighthouse Homes (until 31 Dec 2023)
3. Rotherham Hospice (until 31 Dec 2024)
We also support:
Operation Christmas Child - every year we collect items for shoe boxes to be sent to children around the world who might not otherwise receive a Christmas present.
Project Linus - knitting new home-made blankets and creating beautiful quilts for children who are sick, disabled, disadvantaged or distressed.
Rotherham Foodbank - collecting non-perishable food items throughout the year. We have a collection point in the church foyer.
