The headquarters of the Cherith Trust are situated at Cherith House, a purpose-built meeting and hospitality facility which opened on 28th June 2008.
The house is situated behind Ebenezer Baptist Chapel in Station Road, Old Hill, Cradley Heath, and the main entrance is at the rear of the chapel and accessed via the chapel car park.
It is used during the daytime for Cherith’s activities such as coffee mornings, afternoon tea meetings, craft sessions and the like, details of which are included on the chapel calendar.
Cherith-at-Home is a home visitation scheme which provides a sympathetic befriending service to help and support elderly Christian believers in the Black Country area, to promote their spiritual and social wellbeing and help prevent social isolation.
The service is free, as the visiting is carried out by volunteers. The scheme is administered by Mrs Burrows, the part-time Co-ordinator who links the volunteers with the people to be visited and maintains the service.
The scheme has been running since 2002 and clients say how much they enjoy and look forward to the visits.
We also organise regular coffee mornings and social events to bring together volunteers, supporters and those clients who are able to leave their homes. Most of these are held in Cherith House.
Occasionally we visit local Garden Centres and similar venues and about once a quarter we hold a fellowship morning and lunch at a public venue in the locality.
The Trust is funded from interest on capital, rental income from a flat on the first floor of Cherith House, charitable donations, legacies and occasional sales and similar events held by supporters in aid of the Trust.
If you would like to join the team of Cherith visitors, know of anyone who would appreciate or benefit from receiving regular visits, or would like any further details of the work, please send an email with your contact details to email@example.com
