Since starting V.I.P. events in 2004, our vision and heart for the men and women of our City who are homeless has been growing. V.I.P. nights are amazing but it’s time to go further, to go deeper and see Jesus transform lives as we build community and family with those we reach.
It’s not about just providing a house, but a home that is filled with the presence, love and power of the Holy Spirit. A secure and stable home is the missing link for many men and women in their journey of transformation.
We will work with each resident to create their own plan. This means identifying issues, setting goals and working to achieve them. Examples might include: Money advice/budgeting, access to work, education and training, dealing with feeling bored or lonely; linking to specialist services.
From day to day members of the Church will support residents as part of a planned programme of activities including cooking, cleaning, gardening, praying and helping in the community around the house.
Working alongside agencies and potential employers we will support each individual to guide them into the skills and knowledge they need to move forward. We will continue to build relationship with Barnabus and Mustard Tree who are already at work in this area.
Commit to praying regularly for the Home and those who are within it.
Keep in the loop by signing up for regular email updates.
Let us know how you could get involved – we are looking to make the most of all the different strengths within in the Church.
Some ideas are: Life Skills, Cooking, Maintenance, I.T. Skills, Transport (giving lifts), Social Activities or Trips.
