Each year London Road supports three charities elected by the congregation; one local, one national and one international. We fundraise for these charities through retiring collections at communion services, and members of the church put on a variety of fundraising activities from open gardens to running marathons! This year we have been supporting:
- Crawley & Horsham Samaritans,
- Evelina Children’s Hospital.
London Road is a member of Horsham Churches Together and participates in a variety of outreach events run by Christians in our community. Of special concern is the Winter Night Shelter. This past season London Road hosted the shelter every Tuesday night, offering our hall and kitchen as well as a dedicated team of cooks and hosts to welcome the guests and ensure safety throughout the night.

London Road is proud to be a fair-trade church. We aim to use fair-trade products such as tea, coffee, sugar, biscuits, and more at all our church events. A traidcraft stall is available monthly after the morning service at which you can purchase all kinds of fair-trade food and household items.
