Hackney Winter Night Shelter

We have a strong link with the Hackney Winter Night Shellter.

Our helping involves getting to know the guests who attend and enjoying their company. We also cook, serve an evening meal, sleep over in the shelter, make breakfast the following morning, tidy up and wash the bedding. If this sounds a chore, it isn't. It feels like a privilege.

Fundraising also takes place to raise the money for food, which costs approximately £100 for the evening meal and breakfast.

If you would like to help with any aspect of this work, please let us know.

The Festival Chorus

The Festival Chorus was founded as a community choir in 1997. It rehearses and performs in our church.
