Although Deal and the surrounding areas are generally considered to be reasonably affluent, below the surface there are numerous people affected by life-controlling issues.
CommunityConnect helps disadvantaged and marginalised individuals, particularly men and women who are dealing with drug and alcohol addictions, mental health problems and other circumstances that cause them to be on the margins of society.
On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings we run a drop-in centre called Cafe Connect at our Victoria Road hub from 10:30am to 1:00pm. We offer filter coffee, great cake and a listening ear for anyone who wants to come along.
Linking with our partners across the country, if we aren't able to help with particular issues locally, we can signpost our service users to the support they need. To date, we have had significant success in helping with housing, rehabilitation, mental health and other complex issues individuals were facing on their own.
For more information, drop into one of our Cafe Connect sessions, or contact Pastor Paul via the Community Connect office on 01034 448106 or
