Get Involved + Get Out There!

There are lots of opportunities to 'Get Involved' within the context of the church, but also to 'Get Out There' with our linked social transformation charities and projects listed below. Find out more about the charities we support and community projects we are involved with below.

Crosslight Debt Advice

Crosslight Advice is an independent, community-focused charity working to alleviate poverty caused by problem debt and lack of financial capability. We host free fortnightly Crosslight sessions at St Dionis throughout the year.

Our shared vision is to restore dignity and hope to those in need by reducing debt-poverty and improving financial capability through the provision of free face-to-face advice, money education, and ongoing support. Our heart is to meet people at their point of need and support them through to full restoration, however long that takes.

Could you volunteer to help?
Take a look here or email Fiona for more information. {You do not need any prior experience, as we will provide all the training you need.}

The Money Course is a simple, effective, online budgeting and money education resource run by Crosslight Advice designed to equip you with tools to get on top of your finances. 

Courses are regularly taking place. Find out more & sign up here

Glass Door Outreach

2023/24 Season - Tuesday & Wednesday nights

Glass Door has been providing winter shelters since its inception in 1999, for thousands of men and women to find safe shelter and the support needed to leave homelessness behind.

This winter, we will provide a twice weekly place (the CAS Halls) for those experiencing homelessness to sleep; on Wednesdays this will be a women-only shelter and Tuesdays will be mixed (starting from Feb 2024).

Volunteers will arrive around 7pm to chat to guests, prepare and serve hot drinks and an evening meal, then clear up for 9pm. 

Rota slots for Glass Door fill up fairly quickly, so if this is a ministry you'd like to join please contact James Mackenzie-Smith (our volunteer co-ordinator).

Glass Door Sleep Out is back!

Sign up to be part of the 2023 St Dionis Sleep Out team here!

In 2022, as Glass Door Sleep Out returned for the 10th time, 75 people gave up their beds and gathered at Duke of York Square. Many more got together at remote events, at their churches, schools or back gardens, all to raise crucial funds for Glass Door’s guests, and awareness on homelessness ahead of winter.  

To date, participants have raised more than £70,000, all of which could run our shelters for one month this winter.

Unfortunately, the council provision of taxi drivers to deliver the food boxes has now stopped so Foodbank are trying to recruit volunteers to help them deliver the boxes. They need people who are available at some point during the week for 3 roles:

1. drive a hire van - here volunteers will be paired up with a volunteer passenger and deliver in 3 hour shifts to residents
2. volunteer passenger in van - as above
3. drive your own car: the shifts are 9am - 12pm  or 1pm - 4pm
(you can sign up for just one shift a week or more).

Contact Sian ( / 020 7731 3693) if you can help out in this way.

NEXT COLLECTION DATE: 8th and 15th October

Local help with tasks in the community

The church continues to respond to requests to help local elderly, isolated and vulnerable people referred to us by the NHS during this challenging time. So far, we have supported over 30 people in our local community, but to continue doing so, we need your help.

Are you able to:
- Make regular phone calls to check in with someone? 
- Run errands, like shopping, picking up prescriptions or other small tasks that mean that person can stay home and stay safe?

You can do this by being paired with an individual who you will support on a weekly basis, or by just volunteering a few hours/days here and there on an ad hoc basis. It's helpful if you have a car but not at all essential. 

If you are able to help, drop Judith an email on to discuss options and capacity!

Kids Matter

Volunteering opportunities available

Kids Matter aims to reduce the impact of poverty on children through community-based programmes which connect parents and carers and strengthen family relationships. Kids Matter programmes are restarting this autumn and you can get involved by praying, baking cakes for the programme, or helping with the creche (Friday mornings from 9-12ish).
If you are interested in any of the above, please email Jo Stilwell for more information on how you can get involved!

Fulham Memories

The Fulham Memories programme is part of our Fulham Teammates initiative and aims to provide participants with a fun social session which includes some light level physical activity to improve mobility and overall health while also reducing loneliness in our local communities.

The weekly Fulham Memories sessions are 1 hour 30 minutes long and consist of two halves. The first half involves quizzes, puzzles and reminiscence activities to stimulate cognition. This is followed by chair-based exercises ranging from strength to flexibility, as well as games such as boccia and bowling.

The Fulham Memories programme has been developed over several years, working with key stakeholders and experts. The unique curriculum engages participants and can be tailored to suit the needs of di­fferent groups.

The programme typically works with older adults, or those with less mobility. Our coaches are experienced in working with people facing social isolation and low levels of self-esteem.

THE CURRENT PROGRAMME HAS BEEN PAUSED. Please watch this space for details of the new course.
