Alive church is a large church which has 8 Locations, 3 of which are in Lincoln itself. Stuart and Irene Bell are the senior pastors and Lincoln has 3 other full time pastors as well as a larger team of paid and voluntary staff. It does a lot of community work through its charity, Acts Trust, which include ESOL classes, Food Bank, Job clubs, 'The Shed' for men, 'Butterflies' for women, 'Energize' which does youth work across the city as well as the church, and others. A new project for Acts Trust is 'Welcome Churches', and it is in the process of setting up a 'Welcome Box' team. The plan is for the Hong Kong Ready Churches project to become part of our Welcome Churches project.
