Acts 435 

The name Acts 435 is taken from the Bible; the book of Acts, chapter 4, verse 35 which describes how the early disciples of the risen Christ shared their possessions, and passed money to the apostles to give to anyone who had need.

Acts 435 is an online giving charity, directly connecting those who want to give with those who are in genuine need of their help, through a network of local churches and charities. If you are in crisis and are in need of a small amount of money (up to £150) Acts 435 can help you. All we need from you is to fill out the form below, and to be able to supply a referral by a recognised agency such as the job centre, or your social worker.

The process from start to finish normally takes 7-14 days.

More Information

If you need help from Truro foodbank there are a few simple steps to follow.

THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP IS TO GET A FOODBANK VOUCHER.

In order to provide the most appropriate help for the circumstances of your situation we work with local agencies. If they feel you are struggling to put food on the table, they will issue you with a foodbank voucher. The local agency can also provide long term support if needed to help address some of the issues behind the reasons for your crisis. Agencies Truro Foodbank work with include: Citizens Advice, housing support officers, children’s centres, health visitors, social services and some local charities.

1. GET IN TOUCH WITH US.

If you call or email Truro foodbank they will be able to walk through your situation and put you in touch with a relevant local agency.

2. ARRANGE A VISIT TO THE REFERRAL AGENCY.

They will discuss your situation and supply you with a foodbank voucher where appropriate.

If you are in financial crisis and live in England or Wales, please call 0808 2082138 for free (open Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm) to talk confidentially with a trained Citizens Advice adviser. They can help address your crises and provide support to maximise your income, help you navigate the benefits system, and identify any additional grants you could be entitled to. If needed, they’ll issue you with a voucher so you can get an emergency food parcel from your local food bank.

3. BRING  YOUR FOODBANK VOUCHER TO YOUR NEAREST FOODBANK CENTRE. 

You can find a list of our local centres and opening times here. When you arrive, we’ll welcome you with a warm drink and our trained volunteers will chat with you about your situation. We’ll also discuss any dietary needs you may have and exchange your foodbank voucher for a parcel of three days of emergency food. We’ll also help to support you in any other ways that we can. Most of our foodbank centres offer a cafe style environment and our aim is to provide non-judgemental support at the point of crisis.

If you have any further questions our FAQ’s page may help, or feel free to give us a call.

CAP 

Our neighbouring church in Kea lead the Truro Christians Against Poverty centre. It is one of the many ways Christians can help see lives transformed. The team at St Kea Church focus on helping people get out of debt, find release from addiction and get back into work. We believe it is ultimately the good news of Jesus that transforms lives, so everything we do is in response to the difference He has made to us and our desire for others to know the difference He can make for them too.

At the heart of the CAP work that the church at St Kea do is Lanterns. Lanterns is our midweek congregation which provides teaching, discussion, support and care in a fun environment. For more information about CAP Lanterns follow this link.

 

If you are struggling to manage your finances because of debt and financial worries then please be in touch with Christians against poverty. You can access their services on their website, or by contacting Natalie Gavan (Debt Centre Manager 0800 328 0006) based at Kea Church, or by speaking to someone here at All Saints.
