The Starfish Enterprise Trust Ltd. is a Christian charity that provides an umbrella for interchurch initiatives in the Basingstoke area to start up and develop. Some of these initiatives, such as the Town Chaplaincy and the Foodbank, began as Starfish initiatives but as they grew they were floated off as independent charities. Others have preferred to remain within the shelter of the umbrella. Presently, Starfish provides such an umbrella for Healing On The Streets, Cedar Tree Counselling, Community Food Link and OneChurch Basingstoke itself.
OneChurch provides the spiritual oversight for Starfish to ensure what it does is in line with God’s purposes for our town.
We are presently seeking to bolster our Board of Trustees with 2-3 new members to improve the quality of governance of the charity as the scope of the work increases. We are looking for people who are regular members of one of our local churches, who are committed to seeing our churches working together more closely and would be willing to take responsibility for some of the areas of governance essential for a modern charity.
If you know of someone who might be interested in obtaining further information about these roles, or are interested yourself, please, in the first instance, contact Andy Taylor at AndyT@bccnet.org.uk (mob. 07748 155703).
