Glenorchy supports a number of chosen charities each year (see below). We also support one of the URC’s Commitment for Life projects, Exmouth’s Open Door and Exmouth Larder, and local Christian Aid, Bible Society and Fairtrade events. We are also involved in Christians Together in Exmouth, helping to organise and taking part in its various activities.
