Rapid Relief Team providing water to emergency workers

Actively practising Christianity

We live and work with people from all walks of life, beliefs and cultures and many Brethren own businesses that collectively employ thousands of non-Brethren staff.

We place great importance upon actively practising Christianity and for us this occurs in many ways:

  • Service to our family
  • Service to our church
  • Service to both our local and global community

This has significant meaning to the Brethren because we firmly believe that action can change lives. The reward for us when time and effort is gifted to fundraising, volunteering and disaster relief is seeing a real difference made to those in need.

Learn more about how Plymouth Brethren members serve the community by being part of Rapid Relief Team, a global group of volunteers of all ages.

It’s about helping out and giving back

The Plymouth Brethren live harmoniously in ordinary suburban streets around the globe. It is often said we make excellent neighbours as we actively endeavour to live in the generous and caring spirit of Christ.

Our children through their schools engage in fundraising in support of community charities, we are supportive when people need help and cheerfully contribute to the communities in which we live.

As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men.

Galatians 6 v 10
