Partner Projects

Holy Trinity co-operates with other charities and community groups locally and internationally through giving and practical support. With many of these charities we build lasting friendships over years and are delighted to hear about their wonderful work. Some of these charities we contribute to from our annual tithe, others we help in practical ways, collecting food, offering volunteers or our premises.

We are also keen to encourage people to volunteer with the local partner projects, please see more information about volunteering here, or click the info links below.

Merton Faith in Action Homeless Project

is an inter-faith project  providing support and advice for local homeless people. The project works closely with the housing department, drug and probation services, health services and other agencies.

They run a day centre which is open on Wednesdays and Fridays throughout the year. Housed in the Salvation Army Hall in Kingston Road, it's run by a friendly and caring project management team with twenty volunteers from different faith groups. The drop-in offers a very warm welcome to about 60 vulnerable people each session. They can eat, shower, change their clothes, do their laundry, get sleeping bags, food parcels, do some emailing, engage in social activities and be seen by key agencies and be accompanied to appointments. In short, feel like human beings again.

Joshua Orphan and Community Care

supports community-driven sustainable development projects in Malawi, helping HIV/AIDS orphans, vulnerable children and their families. Their work is driven by the communities they work with. They recognise the importance of Early Childhood Development and believe that all children and their communities should have resources and assistance to ensure that all children can grow and develop in their communities free of hunger and with access to education and basic health care.

Merton Winter Night Shelter

is a project involving YMCA London South West and nearly 20 faith groups in the Merton area of London. We offer warmth, food and a place to sleep for up to 12 local rough sleepers over the coldest months of December, January and February. A number of faith groups provide a shelter for one night per week for half of that period, and volunteers to help run it. We also help to provide move-on opportunities for our guests.

Holy Trinity is one of the venues for the Night Shelter.
