Need to look beyond the immediate and see what might work for
their cluster, reaching into the community and the steward positions will
Different ideas will work for different clusters.
Encourage a meeting between local third sector providers i.e.
Credit Union, CAB, Christians Against Poverty, Foodbank, local councillors
surgeries, youth service, Sure Start-type family work, young mums drop-off
breakfast to see if the church buildings could be used in any way.
