Save the date: HOMELESS SUNDAY 13 October 2019

Glass Door invites the community to join us at a church service celebrating twenty years of shelter and support in the community. Saint Luke's Church in Chelsea will be hosting an evensong service and celebration on Homeless Sunday – 13 October 2019 at 3pm. Reception to follow.

All are welcome. There is no need to RSVP. Please do come along and bring your friends and family. 

A reception is due to follow the service. Do stay for teas and cakes to follow the service. 

Homeless Sunday has been part of the Christian calendar for more than a quarter of a century. It is an opportunity for churches of all denominations and people of all faiths to unite and show solidarity with those experiencing homelessness and to reflect and plan practical action on homelessness.

There were just seven night shelters operating across the Glass Door (then WLCHC) network in 1999. Today there are 29 and soon to be more across the boroughs of Kensington and Chelsea, Hammersmith and Fulham, Wandsworth and Richmond-Upon-Thames.

The service will be in recognition of the importance of community in supporting men and women find a way beyond homelessness. More details to follow.
