Homelessness in Cambridge is on the streets for us all to see and continues to stretch the resources of the organisations in the city set up to help. Among its sufferers are the rough sleepers you see in our streets and parks, others finding a cold shelter in tents on the city outskirts, and many more "hidden" homeless sheltering in cars or squats or dividing time between the streets and a friend’s floor. With the coming of winter this life of danger and discomfort becomes a struggle to survive and meet the basic daily need to keep safe, dry and warm.

The Cambridge Churches Homeless Project works together with the City Council, Jimmy’s and other service providers and runs from December to March in eleven churches and one synagogue, one venue for each night of the week. We take turns to provide a friendly welcome, hot supper, and safe space to sleep to up to 17 homeless guests.

You are warmly invited to come and meet us and volunteer to help this winter - click below for details about how to help, or visit their website here.

 

Tuesday 6 November 7pm @ Little St Mary’s Church, Trumpington Street

Friday 9 November 8pm @ Our Lady & the English Martyrs, Hills Road

Wednesday 14 November 7pm @ St Paul’s Church, Hills Road

NB all new volunteers need to come to ONE of these three sessions, which include basic training.

You don’t need a career in social work, or any specialist knowledge or skills, to be a huge help in this immensely rewarding work. All you need is a friendly interest, a little time this winter, and a willingness to give and be blessed! RSVP to This email address is being protected from spambots.
