Welcome

"There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus"
Galatians 3:28 

Churches Together in Purley & Kenley is a group of thirteen churches in the south of Croydon who work, worship and proclaim the Gospel together, seeking new ways to deepen our communion with Christ and with one another. Our activities are coordinated by a team of volunteers from our constituent churches and partner organisations.

Purley Food Hub

Based at Purley United Reformed Church, the Food Hub has met an ever-increasing need since it was set up by Churches Together in Purley & Kenley in 2013. Clients are referred by local partner agencies and are given food for three meals a day, for three days, for each family member.
