Help unlock the door to a better life

This year we are supporting two charities which give hope to those who find themselves homeless,  Tariro and Crawley Open House.

Tariro provides shelter, education and employment opportunities for disadvantaged orphans and young people in Zimbabwe.

Crawley Open House  provides support for those living on the streets locally through its day centre, hostel, and advice clinics on finding accommodation.

If you are walking past the church look out for the Lent installation near the church porch. How do you feel when you see it?

Inside the church are some stations to offer the chance to reflect on issues of homelessness and to find out more about the two charities.

Envelopes can be found at the back of the church if you would like to support these charities or mark an envelope with Lent Appeal and post through the church office letterbox. Thank you.

Many thanks to Margaret Somers for creating such a profoundly moving sculpture. If you cannot get to the church to see it, there will shortly be photos on the website along with some reflections on issues of homelessness.
