Our Charity

Rehoboth Community Outreach Club (1-18 Allwood Close, Sydenham SE26 4JP) is a charity and it has been entered onto the Register of Charities with the Registered Charity Number 1168822.

Rehoboth Community Outreach club started reaching out to vulnerable families in 2013, offering befriending, parenting & life skills training. Over time the services evolved expanding to offer mentoring to young people, employment skills training and a food bank. In March 2014 Rehoboth started receiving requests for support with addressing the increasing issue of food poverty amongst the single homeless living in hostels and the local street homeless, this saw the launch of the Community Lunch Club. Initially the lunch club was feeding 20 people every Monday with a 2 course hot meal. But this number quickly grew to 150 people a week when Rehoboth partnered with Miriam Lodge providing meals to their most vulnerable homeless residents. The partnership has expanded and Rehoboth Community Outreach Club now provides over 400 meals weekly across 5 homeless local hostels, vulnerable elderlies and families that are struggling.  We are open Monday and Thursday between 11am – 2pm. Week nights we drop off chill food and sandwiches which are donated by supermarkets in the community. We also provide a soup social with home cooked vegetable and chicken soup with rolls to some local homeless hostels each Friday.


The generosity of our local donors business and others in neighbouring community like Nandos, Brixton Cake Shop, Sainsbury’s Forest Hill, Neighbourly, Food To Donate, Lewisham Food Network,  and Lewisham Food Bank on Malham Road (Hope Christian Centre), along with the financial donations from London Community Foundation and individuals in the community that make it possible to provide our services free to vulnerable individuals and families. The community outreach service is facilitated by a team of 25 volunteers who cook, serve food, clean, deliver the meals, and provide the befriending, mentoring and training activities. Rehoboth hopes to double its feeding programme to 450 meals a week by the end of 2020; to support at least 50 homeless people to capacity build their employment and life skills, enhancing their potential of accessing employment, education and training opportunities. 

The Rehoboth Community Outreach Club aims to contribute to breaking the generational cycle of poverty and deprivation within families, inspire hope & healing in the heart and soul of vulnerable individuals and communities and encourage peace, unity and respect across generations. We seek and appreciate further financial, time and resource donations that enable us to meet our vision of UK communities free from food poverty and benefiting from sustained upward social and economic mobility for everyone.

A donation of £2.50 provides one complete two course hot meal; £15 can purchase a box of chicken to go towards 30 meals. For further information please contact us.
