Glasgow Overnight Welcome Centre 2021/22

2021-11-16T17:04:53+00:0016 November 2021|

Glasgow City Mission are delighted to be delivering the Overnight Welcome Centre (OWC) again this winter. Building on the success of this updated service that we delivered in 2020/21, we look forward to helping the people most at risk of rough sleeping. We will open on 1 December and will close on 31 March and for the second year we will operate out of a Glasgow city centre hotel. This will ensure vulnerable men and women will receive a safe and warm welcome and the dignity of their own bedroom.

Charles Maasz discusses the word that has stuck with him during this particular season of his life, and relates it to a clear invitation from God; to floss out the distractions in our lives and step towards becoming the people we were created to be.

Winter is Coming

As the summer sun sets increasingly earlier, we are reminded that Winter is on the horizon. At Glasgow City Mission, this means that planning and preparation for the Overnight Welcome Centre must begin as we prepare to welcome hundreds of people over the season, who would otherwise be sleeping on the street. Overnight Welcome Centre Manager Elyse MacKinnon discusses her focus for the next few months, and makes a special plea.
