Oak Grove Church

We visited Oak Grove Church in Norfolk to see how partnership with Cinnamon was helping them to reach their community. This is what we found.

Transform Your Community Through Social Action

Access the resources you and your church need to reach those in need.

If you want to help churches support those in need in their communities, you’ve come to the right place!

There are two ways we help local UK churches impact their communities – by developing Christian social action projects and supporting individual church leaders and volunteers. Together this is a powerful combination that brings transformation to the very heart of communities across the country.

Come and explore how we can support you.

Our Values

Jesus Centered

We look to Jesus as our inspiration and our guide. So, we start and end every meeting in prayer and take time to reflect and seek God as a team.

Helpful and Practical

Everything we do is focused on practically supporting churches and Christian Social Franchises. We always ask ourselves, “what difference will this make at grass-roots level?”

Creative and Expert

We work together as a diverse team to pool our resources, share our expertise and challenge ourselves to do things better.

Connecting People

We want to share what we’re doing with as many people as possible. We also acknowledge others who are doing excellent work to support churches and seek to partner with them to maximise our impact.
