Your support is helping men, women and families affected by homelessness and poverty to know they are cared for. Here are some of the things you’ve helped to make happen this year.
Evening Drop-in: We serve a two-course meal for an average of 70 people each evening. Staff, volunteers and guests all help serve the meal and we all eat together. This creates a calm atmosphere where guests feel valued and quality conversations can take place.
Kitchen team: Our cook is helped by a great team, which includes Adam who featured in our Christmas appeal. As the team work together they are learning new skills and building strong and trusting relationships.
Urban: Some 200 men and women have benefitted from our Urban Café in the past year. Urban provides opportunities for people to take part in courses and activities which help develop skills and confidence.
Child and Family Centre: All 20 of the school-age children who graduated from our nursery before the summer were able to go to mainstream school. This great achievement was made possible by nursery staff working hard to get the children the additional support they required to flourish.
Pray with us
Join us in thanking God for another amazing year, and in praying for God’s guidance in 2019.
Give thanks for our amazing volunteers, without whom this work wouldn’t be possible. Pray we would be able to make best possible use of our volunteers’ skills and abilities.
Give thanks for each family represented at our Child and Family Centre, and pray each one would be able to fulfil their potential. Give thanks for progress made in finding new premises and please pray for this ongoing process.
Please pray for our street outreach where project workers go out to build relationships with those who are begging and rough sleeping. Give thanks that we have been able to increase the number of outreach shifts each week.
Please pray for the tenants in our Housing First project. Three individuals and a couple were housed as part of this project in 2018. We pray for stability and peace for them. Pray too for those who will be housed in this way in 2019.
