Hosted by: Small group
Activity: Community


Design a postcard offering a 'helping hand' to neighbours who have non-specialist jobs that need doing around the house or in the garden. Include a return address or contact telephone number.

Make it clear on the card that the service is free and will be provided by local Christian volunteers. You could choose a specific date when help will be available or you could begin an open-ended initiative.

Post the cards through your neighbours' doors.

Use time in your small group to pray for your neighbours' spiritual well-being.


The members of your small group will provide a pool of willing volunteers to respond to any requests you receive for a helping hand. By offering help, the group demonstrates that it cares for the local residents.


By providing practical support relationships are fostered and neighbours are assisted.
