We seek ways to serve the community
Community Food Co-op
Started in June 2007, the Dyserth Community Food Co-op serves between 50 and 60 bags of fresh fruit and vegetables every week. The Co-op began as an initiative of Horeb but its members and volunteers come from the community of Dyserth and beyond. The Food Co-op is supported by the Rural Regeneration Unit. Find out more here.
Dyserth Community Lunch
We hold a monthly community lunch which is open to everyone – young and old. This normally takes place on the first Wednesday of every month when a two course cooked dinner is served for a very reasonable cost. Find out more here.
We are a Fairtrade Church
Recognising the connection between poverty and trade and believing that God calls us to seek to transform unjust structures of society Horeb United Reformed Church is a Fairtrade Church. This means we are committed to using Fairtrade products such as tea, coffee, biscuits, sugar etc. whenever we serve these products. We will also promote Fairtrade during Fairtrade Fortnight and during the year through events, worship and other activities whenever possible.

Horeb is an active supporter of Christian Aid with various events taking place throughout the year. We also support Christian Aid through the United Reformed Church’s Commitment for Life programme and are partnered with Bangladesh.
Other Activities and Events

These have included a Burns Supper, Garden Party, Craft Fairs and Concerts. We also host the annual Village Quiz and work in partnership with Contact the Elderly in hosting a strawberry Tea for Pensioners.
