FOR THE GLORY OF GOD AND THE GOOD OF THE POOR

The past

The Deptford Ragged Trust dates back to 1844 when eight ‘Christian men and women’ from Deptford opened one of London’s first ‘ragged schools’ in a loft above a cowshed on Deptford High Street.

The present

Today the Deptford Ragged Trust at the Shaftesbury Christian Centre is home to The Bear Church, Bear Cubs, The Evening Service and soup kitchen, The Deptford Ragged School Archive, English Fridays, Psalms and Stretches, BearLive and all kinds of creative and community events from theatre shows to jumble sales...

The future

The Deptford Ragged Trust plans to knock down its 1950’s life-expired building and replace it with a new building of six storeys, with the ground and part of the first floor for flexible church, community, exhibition, archive, café and office space, and the upper floors for residential accommodation at ‘London Affordable Rent’.  (Aimed to provide homes for those who otherwise couldn’t afford one)
