WHAT WE DO

SERVING THE COMMUNITY OF SOUTHPORT
Each week we serve hundreds of people through our various projects. Each project has been developed to best meet the needs of people in Southport and beyond. We partner with some of the best organisations in the UK to deliver our projects. 
Our goal is to serve people with excellence and to show people the unconditional love of God. If you would like more information about any of our projects please get in touch and let us tell you more about what we do. 

CAP

Christians Against Poverty
Christians Against Poverty is a national debt counseling charity with a network of 239 centres based in local churches. Christians Against Poverty offers hope and a solution to anyone in debt through its unique, in-depth service. 

Call 0800 3280006 to book an appointment.

At CAP Southport we are here to help everyone get over their debt problems, it doesn’t matter who you are, what religion you are, nationality, sexual orientation, or how you got into debt. And the service we offer, like all CAP centres, is completely free.

ALPHA

A course about Jesus
Who is the Alpha Course for?

The Alpha course is designed primarily for people who aren’t regular churchgoers.  Each course is open to everyone who would like to attend.

Why Attend the Alpha Course?

Guests do Alpha for a wide variety of reasons – some want to investigate whether God exists, and talk about this with others; others are concerned about what happens after death.

Some people have particular questions that they would like to discuss; others want to understand other peoples’ beliefs or would like to explore what the purpose of life is. Many guests have never been to church, others may have attended church occasionally but feel they have never really understood the basics of the Christian faith.

FOODBANK

Food for those in need
Monday through to Friday Shoreline opens its doors so people can come along and collect food parcels. Each year the Food Bank provides and distributes 1000’s of food parcels to people in need.

It started back in July 2011 when a local Southport bakery allowed volunteers to collect produce that was unsold everyday, which the church then parceled up and gave out to those in need. Today those in need can pick up many more items including bread, pies, crisps, sandwiches, vegetables, tinned foods, nappies, and toiletries – supplied by a mixture of local businesses and national companies/charities.

This ministry continues to meet people at their point of need. We continue to develop our food programme to be as effective and help those in need in the most efficient way possible.

The food bank is open at 5.00pm-6:30pm five days a week (time and days subject to change). Sign-ups are available every day during FoodBank hours. It would be helpful if you can bring a bag to collect your items.

If you wish to sign up to the food bank please bring identification, such as proof of benefits, and if claiming food for children please bring a child benefit letter in the name of the child and identification for the child.

STREET PASTORS

love on the street
Street Pastors is an inter-denominational, national, Church response to town centre problems, engaging with people on the streets to care and listen. It was pioneered in London in 2003 and has seen some remarkable results, including drops in crime rates in areas where teams have been working.

There are now over 150 teams around the United Kingdom, and over 7000 Street Pastors. In Southport there are four teams who take turns to patrol the town centre on a Saturday night between 11pm and 3am.

We are always recruiting for new Street Pastors in Southport. If you are a committed Christian, have attended Shoreline for at least 9 months and are over the age of 18 you may apply.
