Our chaplain, Marion Carson provides inspiration for finding hope, even when we're not looking.
Katie Thomson, who volunteers at one of our evening drop-in sessions, highlights the importance of human connection and the difference a simple smile can make to whether or not a person feels 'seen'.
In our latest blog, CEO Charles Maasz highlights the importance of genuine human connection and the gratitude we have for people in our lives. He emphasises the significance of deep and authentic communities, and draws a parallel between the deprivation of such communities and the trauma of being an orphan. He presents the early Church as an example of a revolutionary community that provided nourishment and support, emphasizing the need for the church to serve as a sanctuary for those who feel disconnected in today's individualised culture.
Our Overnight Welcome Centre (OWC) ran from 1 December 2022 until 31 March 2023. For the first time the OWC was operated from our Crimea Street building to allow us to access emergency beds from a variety of venues in Glasgow.
