We have enjoyed a strong relationship for many years with CURBS (children in urban situations). We have featured their activities in previous newsletters and they have often led children’s programmes at our events.
In January, our trustees and theirs agreed to a full merger. CURBS will shortly cease to exist as a separate charity and will operate under the auspices of Urban Expression. This will not only reduce administration and costs, but will enable us to work even more closely together. Sara Barron, CURBS’ development worker, who is already a mission partner, has joined the team of coordinators, and the chair of CURBS, Peter Davison, has become a UE trustee.For more information about CURBS, have a look at https://curbsproject.org.uk/.
From the Curbs trustees:
Curbs will remain Curbs as you know it. We will have the same heart, values and indwelling in the Lord’s word. We will have the same wonderful worker – Sara, who will still work with her Curbs hat on, but we will now work within a larger charity whose values, passion for urban ministry and vision align with ours, allowing us to do more than we ever could have done by ourselves.We will no longer be our own charity, but the identity and presence of Curbs will not change, if anything, we hope it will just grow stronger.
