Founded in 1991 by a local group of Christians, The Door has been at the heart of the Stroud district for over 30 years.
The Door travels with people for the long term – walking alongside them, carrying the burden and never giving up.
A society where every YOUNG PERSON’S FUTURE is determined by their POTENTIAL not their past
Bringing HOPE into the lives of YOUNG PEOPLE and their FAMILIES by UNLOCKING POTENTIAL and OPENING OPPORTUNITY so that their PAST does not define their FUTURE
But the HOLY SPIRIT produces this kind of fruit in our lives: LOVE, JOY, PEACE, PATIENCE, KINDNESS, GOODNESS, FAITHFULNESS, GENTLENESS AND SELF-CONTROL. There is no law against these things!
The Bible: Galatians 5:22, 'The Fruits Of The Spirit'

OUR CODE OF CONDUCT - EXCERPT FROM THE KEYS
1 I am accountable to others
2 I support and challenge myself and others in equal measure
3 I am creative in the way I deal with challenges and opportunities
4 I always trust that my colleagues have good intentions towards me
5 I care enough to confront issues when they happen
6 I talk to others when there is an issue, not about others
7 I treat people the way I want to be treated myself
8 I accept everyone regardless of their story
9 I am open to discussing all views within any topic, even when I don’t agree with them
10 I forgive other’s wrong doings, and as well as my own
11 I am always prepared to give others another chance

And now these three remain:
faith, hope and love.
But the greatest of these is love.
(1 Corinthians 13:13)
