Holy Trinity Church
Trinity Street NR2 2BJ
Holy Trinity has played a significant role in the life of English+. Having supported us right from the start, Holy Trinity continues to accommodate us for our Thursday English sessions and coordinates the popular Tuesday Art and Craft Group. Year after year, the church has provided a wonderful team of volunteers, much needed resources and a warm and welcoming environment for our participants.
“Holy Trinity is delighted to have hosted English+ since it started in 2011 and to partner with the great work being done. It is such an encouragement to see the way that men and women of many nationalities are learning together, being given confidence and support in language learning through the fantastic team, and also to see a number join our local church community, to which their presence is such a gift.”
St Thomas Norwich
Grove Walk, Norwich, NR1 2QF
As one of our newest partners, STN Trust has supported English+ as we’ve grown and developed in recent years. The Sanctuary Coffee Stop on Grove Walk offers us a fantastic venue for our Wednesday conversation classes as well as volunteering opportunities for our participants serving in the cafe. STN Trust also coordinates the much appreciated Christmas food deliveries to local asylum seekers.
“STN Trust has the pleasure of hosting English+ on a Wednesday afternoon at our Grove Walk site within the Sanctuary Coffee Stop. We love having the team and their participants as regular visitors. The English+ classes have provided many of our STN family the opportunity to regularly support the sessions as well as benefiting from a number of English+ participants volunteering within The Sanctuary Coffee Stop and becoming valued members of our Sanctuary team.”
St Luke’s Church
61 Aylsham Road, NR3 2HF
St Luke’s provides English+ with a fantastic venue for our biggest English session on Monday mornings. The support their volunteers offer with refreshments and child care is invaluable to us.
“The Congregation & Church Council at St Luke’s Parish Church are keen to welcome and assist English+ in their important work. As a Church we seek to show hospitality to the stranger and to build bridges, not walls – which is exactly what English+ was set up to do. It is our privilege to work with you and your volunteers – making a lasting impact on this community – no longer ‘strangers’ but friends.”
