Castlehold Baptist Church

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) has re-opened as the Revive Community Hub and offers a welcome to everyone.

On Mondays and Thursdays from 11 to 2, it opens and functions as The Living Room – a heat hub, where people can come to enjoy hot and cold drinks, and cakes, in a warm and friendly environment.

On Wednesdays and Fridays it opens as Newport Youth Café – a warm and friendly place for young people to hang out during the late afternoon or early evening.

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.

Foodbank

The Trussell Trust

Castlehold supports Foodbank and regularly circulates an up-to-date list of much needed items.
There is a box in the church foyer for donations which will be taken to the local distribution centre.
