There are more people who are considered part of the Jubilee Church community than simply those who meet together at Hanwell Fields on a Sunday morning.
Jubilee Church is also:
A midweek community sharing meals together at Peter and Fran's home.
A group of ladies who meet in the week to eat, chat and share a good book together
Serving the Community through the Oasis Project
"Living in sheltered accommodation in the twilight of your life, with only occasional visits from family or the warden patrol can be a lonely existence. When we heard that community rooms at the heart of these developments could be converted into flats because they were not being used, members of Jubilee Church set up The Oasis Project.
Providing social events that anyone can access is the heart of the project, providing a focus for the people who live in the developments to come together in friendship and community.
We initiated a coffee morning, the organisation of which has now been taken on by the residents although we still provide support once a month. We facilitate weekly sessions of armchair exercises and of boccia, a paralympic sport rather like carpet bowls that is performed from a seated position.
In addition, the group has been on minibus outings to places of interest, we have provided Christmas meals and run afternoon of carols and mince pies.
To preserve the anonymity of vulnerable people, we do not include photographs or publish the venue of these events. If you are interested in helping or want to know more, please speak to us."
