Your church needs you!
You will have seen in the news and on the streets, there has been a sudden and significant increase in the number of homeless people in Chichester and the surrounding area.
In response to this very urgent and very human need, the local churches of Chichester Deanery, with the support and agreement of the local authority and Stone pillow, are planning on running, for the coldest months of the year, an Emergency Night Shelter.
Where do you come in? Well, of course it needs funding, and as a deanery we need to raise £5000 to run the shelter from January to March next year BUT we also need people.
People from our benefice already provide hot meals and clothing to some of the homeless, and we need you to help us help them to build on that. Can we, Chichester Harbour Churches, offer 10 people, split between 3 shifts, to man the shelter one night a week? Yes, of course we can. We needs people who can cook, people who can clean, people who can talk, but most of all we need people with a heart for others.
Rev Sarah will be the go to person within the ministry team – go to her and offer your time, and lets’ make a difference!
