A group of churches on the west side of Reading have joined together to form Torch to deliver help and hope to those most in need in our local area. This is a completely free service.
The aim of Torch is to provide a helping hand to those who otherwise can’t get help through a group of volunteers drawn from across the churches. The volunteers will be happy to undertake a variety of everyday tasks for those who find it difficult to get out and about.
The churches also run a variety of courses to provide support and assistance with making good life choices, as well as running events to support the local community.
