Our Vision

Within the community that we live, there are people struggling with the pressures of life whether this is a crisis or something more long term. Whether individuals or families there is a story behind every door.

This is true in every village and town in the country.

R
To support churches and Christians within those churches that are reaching out to people in their communities.
R

To empower and equip members of the church to befriend people in their neighbourhoods, enabling them to show Christ’s love to the broken and hurting.

“But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord.
Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.
But do this with gentleness and respect…”

1 Peter 3: 15 (NIV)

Our Mission

We have two distinct yet inseparable activities:

R

To respond to practical and emotional needs of those in the local community, whatever their background or beliefs, by providing care, help and support. Enabling churches to become empowered in skills for community outreach and engagement through supporting those who are marginalised for whatever reason.

R

To share the good news of Jesus and His salvation, to see spiritual transformation and new life – to share the amazing truth that everyone can have a relationship with God.

These take place within the context of building loving relationships and doing loving actions, thus breaking down barriers and prejudice. This love requires Christians to share the message of salvation and hence demonstrate and communicate the Gospel.

“A new command I give you: Love one another.
As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

John 13: 34-35 (NIV)

Our Journey So Far…

Green Door Families was launched as a Christian charity, working in partnership with churches to make connections with struggling individuals and families who have no church connection.  We partner with Bible believing and gospel centred churches that are able to sign up to the terms of the Evangelical Alliance statement of faith.

Geographically, we work across England and Wales, as long as these churches share our vision and want to be obedient to the command of Jesus to ‘go and make disciples’ (Matthew 28: 19).

Green Door Families is still in its infancy having registered as a charity in February 2018.  However, we share years of experience through our trustees and community connectors.  Already we are experiencing interest from outside agencies and take regular enquiries for support for individuals and families in crisis or just struggling with the demands that life places upon them.  We currently receive requests for support from schools and village agents.  These requests for support are wide ranging in age group and need.  We are not a specialist intervention but a voluntary befriending service providing whatever practical and/or emotional support identified as needed by the individual/family.

What Our Clients Are Saying

"I have been working alongside this charity ever since it started and they have been excellent in the level of support that they have given to the clients that I have referred to them... to support individuals who are often socially isolated and facing times of crisis due to family events, debt, health, etc."
