Our Christian Ethos

At the heart of Marah’s work is the belief that every human being is of immense value in the eyes of God and that God’s unconditional love is extended to all. 

Jesus says that he is especially present within the suffering of the marginalised and the vulnerable (Matthew 25:40) and that in our solidarity with those who suffer we draw near to Jesus and respond to his mission call.

Marah’s volunteers and staff come from a range of backgrounds including those of other faiths or none. It is our policy that we do not promote our faith to our clients or fellow workers. Those of us with faith show this through the love, respect and forgiveness we give and share with those around us.

Marah does not discriminate on any grounds that would cause a person to be treated with injustice and has an equality and diversity policy.
