About Connecting Crossgates

Our Vision

Connecting Crossgates helps gather people together for good in our community of Crossgates & East Leeds.

We believe that healthy positive communities are the result of people achieving a sense of well-being. Well-being includes all aspects of a person’s life.

Our projects focus on children & young people, mental health & well-being, information & support and exploring faith.

Our ethos & values

We seek to serve the whole community, regardless of race, beliefs, lifestyle, ethnic background or religion.

We work with a range of community organisations such as schools, businesses, the local council etc as well as all the churches in Crossgates.
We seek to celebrate all that is good in the area.

Connecting Crossgates is motivated by Christian principles, including love for one another. However, we never impose our faith on anyone. Not everyone involved in our projects shares these beliefs.

We seek to celebrate all that is good in the area.

What’s next?

Our work is developing all the time. In particular we would like to set up a community drop in with an information point and signposting to advice/support and develop our volunteering opportunities.

Do get in touch here if you’d like to volunteer or have an idea to discuss.
