The winter night shelter project in across the deanery in partnership with GlassDoor was hosted by St Matthias and St John the Divine in Richmond and All Saints and Christ Church in East Sheen. The project has now ended and the shelters are empty…..
Father Peter Hart asks us to pray…
…for the guests who may have returned to sleeping rough or sofa-surfing.
… for all those who have been rehoused, found work, had their benefits sorted out, put back in contact with family, had their documents restored – a blessing for them.
…for the staff and volunteers at the Vineyard Centre, Richmond as they continue to offer support and practical help throughout the year.
We should also give thanks….
…for the amazing volunteers who have made the winter night shelter project in partnership with GlassDoor possible.
…for an amazing community response to the project. Not just from the Churches but from the wider community and local schools.
…five months of welcome, fine food and good company
