Hackney Winter Night Shelter

The shelter provides accommodation for homeless people every winter season starting 1st January to the end of March each year. Accommodation is provided by seven other churches on a daily rotation basis. Open Doors operate the shelter every Saturday night in the Upper Hall. On Sunday mornings, breakfast is provided and the homeless people are allowed to stay in the foyer or join in the morning church service and leave whenever they want to. Open Doors has been involved in this for the past six years and interest is growing year on year as we endeavour to also share our faith when the opportunity arises. Dr Frances Akinwunmi has been instrumental in leading this community venture from its inception.
