Our 100@5 campaign
Like many charities we have been hit financially by COVID and we’re currently £8000 short to keep going this year. Because of this we are launching our 100@5 campaign. We’re asking 100 members of our community to commit to giving just £5 a month to keep CURBS going. Can you help us?
However this is not the only way to help us, your prayers are so valuable and we are having a day of prayer for CURBS on the 5th July. Click here for more details to get involved with this (and scroll down to the ‘prayer on the 5th‘ section!)

Welcome to the CURBS Project"CURBS is one of the most innovative, creative and exciting projects working amongst children in the UK." - Bishop Paul Butler, Patron.
Believing that all children are created in God’s image, CURBS starts in the world of the urban child and, through positive relationships, seeks to build bridges which will enable them to experience God’s loving care.
CURBS has 3 main aims:
1. To promote an approach to working with children which starts in their world, recognises their developmental needs and values their spirituality.
2. To provide Christian resources for inner city children and those on outer urban estates for use in church-linked Sunday, mid-week, holiday activities and similar settings.
3.To provide support, training and encouragement for children’s workers in such areas by means of training and resource days, networking and partners.More about CURBS
We have key churches/groups who connect with our approach and share our values and these form our vitally important ‘CURBS HUBS’. These HUBS represent CURBS ‘on the ground’ and we support them with free resources, relevant training and encouragement in their situation. Our HUBS help develop the future direction of our project through feeding back to us, being involved in our Away Days and in piloting and developing new resources. HUBS share our resources and promote CURBS in their local context and through their links/networks.
