Community

Church is about much more than just a group of Christians getting together. It is God's vehicle to affect our local community and the world we live in for the better.

Horsham Debt Advice Service

HDAS is a free service which seeks to come alongside those in financial difficulty, to provide practical support and expert advice.

Trained volunteers from Horsham churches offer guidance and free advice to those seeking help. They assist individuals to resolve their difficulties by suggesting ways to organise their finances, by negotiating with creditors where necessary, and by giving clients the confidence and skills to manage their own finances in the future.

Please visit their website for more information.
