Charity number


SCM is an independent Christian mission working together with churches in the city to bless and serve our city.

We currently have two key projects:

SCM Basics Bank - providing emergency food and clothes to those in need in Southampton.

SCM Basics Bank operates from 6 venues across Southampton. Our Manager works alongside teams of dedicated volunteers to help people who find themselves in a crisis. Service Users are referred to us by referral agents (e.g. health visitors, social services, other charities) and receive 5 days of food and/or a voucher for clothes depending on their needs. Service Users are welcomed with a cuppa and friendly chat whilst their food parcel is prepared. We hold information on other support services so that we can signpost them towards further help.

SCM Schools - providing exciting assemblies and RE days to support local schools.

SCM Schools delivers lively, engaging assemblies & RE days in schools in & around Southampton. Through Question of Faith RE days we support schools in delivering the Christian elements of the RE curriculum. We work in line with their planning to put together a day of teaching & activities centred around their chosen theme.
