Springfield Park Baptist Church


Tool Box Project


Tools With A Mission is a charity who send tools overseas to help educate and establish people into trades.

We are currently looking to reuse:

  • Tools that can be used to train carpenters, mechanics, builders, electricians and plumbers including hand power tools.
  • Sewing machines manual and electric but not built into tables or cabinets.
  • Knitting machines
  • Haberdashery items including:
    • Zips, buttons
    • Scissors, sewing needles, knitting needles and crochet hooks
    • Thread, and fabric. Knitting wool.
  • Manual typewriters.

We send these items to the Tools With A Mission charity who refurbish and send them overseas.


Sorry we are unable to collect items but they can be dropped off any Thursday morning 9.30am - 12 noon at the Coffee Hub at the church when it is allowed to reopen:

Springfield Park Baptist Church,
Springfield Park Road, Chelmsford,
CM2 6EB.
Please call Chris on 07941 150362 for more information.

Toddler Group

To get us back into the flow, we will be limiting numbers for a little while, so BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL. Also, we would kindly ask for no more than 2 children per adult at this time. We will review the situation weekly, and relax these rules as soon as possible.

Please phone or text Alison on 07741 737351 to book your place. We look forward to seeing you!
