Community Outreach Ministry

Church for all Nations is a Christian charity organisation, situated in the Abbey Wood Community in the Greenwich Borough. We have been reaching out to the community and its environs in various ways since 1999. We have been able to successfully meet the needs of Pensioners, Single parents, Schools, the elderly and children within the community. Our mission is to be salt and light like Christ said we are. The amazing thing is this arm of the ministry effectively reaches a clientele that is over 98% Caucasian.
