King Henry’s Walk Garden

The church has a plot in the local community’s
King Henry’s Walk Garden.

Church members are encouraged to go along to plant and weed the church plot and whilst there be a witness to the church. They also participate and help at events e.g. the pensioner’s strawberry tea, the various fairs – summer, autumn, winter and also be on duty when the garden is open to the public.

And goodness is the harvest that is produced from the seeds the peacemakers plant in peace (James 3:18).

Other missions we support are:
Newington Green Action Group
Hackney Winter Night Shelter
Children’s Society

Metropolitan Almshouses

Within the parish are the Metropolitan Benefit Societies’ Almshouses (MBSA) situated on Balls Pond Road.

The scheme has a mixture of 28 flats and cottages around three sides of a quadrangle with a central meeting hall and provides accommodation for older people who are in need. The Church Council (PCC) nominates one trustee of the MBSA charity.

The Mildmays

Run by Notting Hill Genesis and offering high standard, self-contained accommodation, The Mildmays are home to people who want to live independently with 24-7 support on hand. Care workers also provide personal care to vulnerable older people, including adults with physical or learning disabilities. The Church leads a monthly communion service in The Mildmays.
