Love Dereham is an independent charity that works in collaboration with Dereham Baptist Church, other churches in the surrounding area and wider partners within the community.

We strive to show love to the people of Dereham through a range of practical, tangible projects. We are motivated to show love because of the love of the love Jesus has shown us. We seek to display love in all its aspects.

The charity is based on a Christian ethos and principles, however it serves people of faith, different faiths or no faith it all. The charity does not discriminate on any basis; gender, race, sexuality, age, disability etc.
