Inn Churches Night Shelter

Wilsden 26th – 31st December

For the fourth year in a row, St. Matthew’s will be hosting a night shelter for the homeless between Christmas and New Year. The project began as part of St. Matthew’s outreach to the community, but from the beginning it has had enormous support from church members in all four villages. This is an excellent example of the way in which the benefice can work together to further our Christian calling to care for others.

The project is labour intensive, with twenty volunteer slots to be filled for each of the five nights. We need cleaners, catering teams for breakfast and dinner, greeting teams for the evenings and especially volunteers to stay and care for our guests overnight.

If you feel able to volunteer for one of these roles, have a look at the rota on the St. Matthew’s website, www.stmatthewswilsden.org.uk and email David Haigh on david@haigh.demon.co.uk

If you would like more information about the shelter, feel free to ring David on 01535 274225

The night shelter is just one part of Inn Churches’ work to support the homeless and those living on the margins of our society. To learn more about this unique Bradford charity, visit their website at www.innchurches.co.uk
