Local initiatives

Volunteers from Castlehold join with Christians from other Island churches to show the love of Jesus in practical action and to share the hope He brings. Local initiatives involving people from our church are shown below.

Revive Community Hub

Incorporating The Living Room & Newport Youth Café

This community café (formerly called The Living Room) is now named the Revive Community Hub and offers a welcome to everyone.

Five days a week (Mon, Tue, Thur, Fri and Sat), it opens from 9 am to 1.30 pm as The Living Room – a café where people can come to enjoy light refreshments in a warm and friendly environment.

On Wednesdays and Fridays it opens in the early evening  as Newport Youth Café – a warm and friendly place for young people to gather. (6-8pm Wed; 6-9pm Fri)

Street, School and Prayer Pastors

Caring, listening, helping

Street Pastors is a national, Christian organisation. Teams of volunteers help to make our streets safer, especially at night, by offering reassurance, safety and support to people they meet who may be in distress or difficulty. School Pastors support their school or college community by offering a reassuring and friendly presence to students.
Street and School Pastors are supported by Prayer Pastors, who pray for the Street and School teams, and the people they meet with.

Open the Book

Bible storytelling in primary schools

Through this nationwide project, teams prepare dramatised Bible stories to share with children and young people at their assemblies in primary and high schools across the Island.
