Supporting the Community

The Church is keen to support people in experiencing the fullness of life. Many members of the church family volunteer in a range of different ways, from practical involvement to praying for the various ways we try to serve our local community. 

Heathcote Community Centre

Heathcote Parish Church oversee the running of Heathcote Community Centre which is a place where people can come together, enjoy activities and experience greater fullness of life.  The purpose of the Centre is to promote the social, emotional, and physical wellbeing of the local community, whatever their demographic background or experience.  We seek to support the community by maintaining a space where we can host different groups and activities that support achievement of these ends, working in partnership with other key stakeholders in our community.

Heathcote Hub

The Heathcote Hub is open to anyone in our community who would welcome the opportunity to meet others from the locality, alongside enjoying refreshments and other activities together.
We are open on Thursdays from 12.45-3pm and offer a warm welcome to adults from all backgrounds and ages, including a light lunch, table top activities and games in the sports hall (table-tennis, kurling and pickleball).
Heathcote Hub Prep
The Hub is run by a group of volunteers from the church and is free to attend, although a donation box is available for those who wish to support it in this way.
People are welcome to ‘drop in’ for a short time or come for the whole session.  No prior booking is required. For further information, please contact churchoffice.hpc@gmail.com

Foodbank

HPC are partnering with WDF to offer space for a weekly distribution centre on Mondays 12.30 – 2.30pm for those across the district who may need an emergency food parcel. 
HPC are also able to make referrals for foodbank vouchers (contact churchoffice.hpc@gmail.com) and we are also a collection point for members of the public who wish to donate to their local foodbank.

Support through the cost-of-living crisis

Since the pandemic, we have provided regular food support for people in Heathcote who are struggling with the cost of living crisis, often in partnership with ‘Transforming Communities Together, Warwick’ and ‘Your Farmer UK‘.  This has involved both delivery and collection of food hampers.  

Your UK Farmer

Currently, we are running a scheme that provides quality meat and fresh vegetables at a very discounted price every month through the Your Farmer Mobile Market Shop (https://yourukfarmer.co.uk/).
