Here is an update from the Waterside Churches Together Night Shelter folk.
'We are ready to receive guests and have had a few referrals via some of the agencies who work with homeless individuals in our area.
Unfortunately there has been a reason in each case why they could not be accepted either in that they didn't met the criteria for the project or, in one case, that the council managed to offer a weeks accommodation at the last minute. The good news is that our leaflets are getting to the right people and the agencies are telling people about us, so our communication is working well. Meanwhile we are trying to wait patiently as we are more than ready to open'
Our PCC strongly supports this excellent project and a number of our congregation have already completed the volunteer training to help at the Night Shelter as and when the need arises.
