In November 2016, we asked the people of South Croydon one question: ‘What hurts most?’

These were the top 3 results:

  • Busyness- Struggling with all the different things to juggle in life: Work, children, friends… life is just too busy!
  • Parenting- Needing support as a parent in practical ways.
  • Community (lack of it) – Some of you felt that there was a ‘lack of community spirit’ in the area. Some expressed being lonely.

Thank you for your honesty and for taking the time to reflect on things that are tough in life.

As a church, we are here to serve our community and so we will be discussing soon what we can do to help, so watch this space!
