Here at Ashcroft we are committed to Outreach within the local community. In order to do this more effectively we have redeveloped our premises to provide a selection of rooms for hire and these attract a wide selection of outside organisations.
These range from U3A to uniformed groups such as Girls' Brigade. In addition to services, the church itself is used for larger group meetings, concerts and the like.
Hardly a day goes by when at least one room or another is in use and much attention is given to strengthening the ties with the community in this way.
Since October 2012, the members of Ashcroft Church have joined a large team of volunteers in hosting the Cirencester Foodbank, run on Trussell Trust guidelines. It is open every Monday afternoon and Thursday morning. Website: www.cirencester.foodbank.org.uk; Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
