Outreach & Activities
Many visitors experience Berwick church as a place of sanctuary where they can experience a sense of peace. In 2019-2020 we are planning visits and activities with the following groups.
Those who receive and those who provide care. Some of the groups we are working with include; Blind Veterans U.K., The British Legion, You Raise Me Up, St Wilfrid’s Hospice, SOBBS (supporting those bereaved through suicide), Care Homes, Care for Carers, Cruise.
Education. This work includes a Special Educational Needs project with 5 primary schools, prioritisation those in areas of deprivation. A creative project with 12 primary schools in areas of disadvantage and a GCSE photography project. We have developed links with Brighton University Department of Digital Media Arts and with Sussex University School of English. Both of these are creative projects led by lecturers and integrated into the curriculum
Artistic/Creative Community – we are running an Inclusive Arts projects for adults with profound learning needs. We are also working with Towner Art Gallery and their creative activities with vulnerable adults. The church will form the creative inspiration for a major local musical project called ‘The Big Sing’. We welcome art societies and groups. We also have a number of other projects – see below under Arts
