Helping The Homeless
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat; I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink; I was a stranger and you invited me in ....” Matthew 25:36
St Johns is a member of FCENS(Forest Churches Emergency Night Shelter) formed to meet the needs of those sleeping rough in the borough during the winter months. We donate our premises and provide volunteers, food and bedding to sleep our guests for one night per week during the months of November and December.
It is also an opportunity for the church to be the hands and feet of Jesus to the community - especially to those who are homeless.
We welcome everyone to support this project through any or all of the following:
- Volunteering on the day (Cooking, Cleaning, Set-up etc)
- Praying for the project
- Donating towards the project ( food, gifts, clothing, finances etc).
Details for the next night shelter:
Start date: Friday 7th November, 2014
Venue: St Johns Church, Walthamstow E17 4LH
