People Matter

People Matter is run by Valley Church to help support those in need from our local community and further afield.

We believe that all people matter and that the Church can and should make a real difference for the better in the lives of everyone regardless of who they are, what they’ve done, or where they’re from. Valley Church is always looking for ways to put people back on their feet, and to empower them to discover purpose, hope, love and community like they have never known before.

Every year many people have been blessed by our People Matter ministry, but we always have a heart to reach more! If you would like to give into this ministry and enable Valley Church to build into more lives, you can give online via

Local initiatives

Coronavirus has affected many of our lives and as a church we want to do our best to support those affected the most.

Within church we already have people offering help to the vulnerable through organisations like Age Concern and others with shopping, befriending over the phone and online, dropping off emergency supplies and posting mail.

We have a team of sewers making DIY face masks and ear protectors for hospital staff and key workers and we are now starting making plastic face guards too.

We have heard many stories of those in care homes sharing even paper masks and not being able to properly protect those they are caring for, we know we cannot help everyone but we can help some and be part of the solution not the problem.

We would love to hear from you if you want to get involved, can sew, have a 3D printer or just want to help out and have some time on your hands right now. There is something we can all do.

To get in touch please email us at [email protected] or send us a message on Instagram or Facebook. You can also check out our Facebook page Valley Church People Matter – DIY Face Mask and Ear Savers.

Set Free Foundation

Set Free Foundation was established to serve people who are caught up in human trafficking or who maybe at risk of being trafficked. Their aim is to be a part of the solution and as such their focus is Prevention, Return, Recovery and Reintegration of women, men and children who are either caught up in, or potentially exposed to modern day slavery. The vision of Set Free foundation is to create a network of Reintegration centres across Bulgaria and they have purchased their first house, Liberty House, which is in the vicinity of central Bulgaria. In spring 2018, a team from Valley Church visited Bulgaria to transform the garden of Liberty House and to deliver a vast array of toiletries donated by the women of Valley Church.
