“Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.” (James 1:27, ESV)
Jubilee is committed to working oversees to help the afflicted. For example, we are building an orphanage in Zimbabwe. But there are many opportunities to care for needy people right on our doorstep. The need of some of these groups is less apparent.
Many of our members work in the caring professions, and we encourage everyone who attends Jubilee to reach out to their friends and neighbours to offer help as appropriate. People from all kinds of backgrounds will find our services open to them and welcoming.
In addition, we run the following projects:
Jubilee church offers a befriending service to elderly people in Enfield. CRB-checked volunteers are available to visit people in their home.
Some of our members help at a voluntary soup kitchen which feeds the homeless.
Summer Tutorial Service
During the school holidays we offer free classroom teaching to equip teens to pass their GCSE exams.
Young mothers may not seem obviously among the needy, but in fact few in modern society are at greater risk of loneliness and isolation. We provide a very popular free parent and toddler group where mothers from all backgrounds can build relationships with each other.
13 million people live below the poverty line in the UK. Foodbank provides a minimum of 3 days emergency food and support to the local people of Enfield who are in crisis.
Here at Jubilee, we believe that there is a mandate upon us as Christians to help those who are in need (Mat 25:35).
