Why we have houses for the homeless!

Yesterday I was reminded of how important it is that we have houses for homeless people. We took in a new resident who was in such need of a safe place to stay and it was a delight that we were able to offer this person a room and support. Obviously I can't give many details but it reminded me of the importance of the housing project. It make a difference for people who are homeless or rough sleeping.

JRP Training

This Sunday we have an important meeting. There is a meal (rumour has it that it is a Roast) followed by a talk outlining the history of the project, where we are currently and also where we are going in the future. I would love everyone who has been involved past and present to be there as well as those who would like to be involved. I am hoping it will be fun and inspiring. You need to tell Teresa that you would like a place. - (Dave Barlow says write plaice and then NO chips)
Hope to see you on Sunday at 1.30pm at King's Church.

Hampers for those on benefits

I know of a number of churches who at Christmas provide hampers for those on benefits. I find it such a great idea. The newfrontiers church in Hillingdon have got involved with Jesus House as they did just this. I came across a fascinating clip from the politics show on Matt Hosier blog (a superb blog by the way!) which is entitled Crazy World. Have a look!

Everything Conference

You may have noticed that I have not been advertising the caring for the poor conference this year - that is because it is not happening and has left me to concentrate on other things.
A conference that is running this year is Everything and it is really worth having a look at the fab website for all the information.
