Shine Community Hub

Shine Community Hub is the outreach arm of Rugby CLC, offering different services to support the community in which we are situated and the surrounding communities we serve. Church staff and volunteers work together with a number of partner agencies to delivery a range of projects in New Bilton and areas to the South and West of Rugby.


Rugby CLC Food Aid provides fresh fruit and vegetable hampers to households in need in the New Bilton, Long Lawford, Cawston and Bilton areas of Rugby. We work in partnership with Neighbourly and Fareshare Go and we receive referrals from number of local agencies working with those who are struggling financially. A community support worker is available by appointment to help with applications for benefits, jobs or even college places. Contact for more information.
