Each night, dozens of people in Colchester are sleeping rough. They have no home to go to, no roof to sleep under, and very little to protect them from the cold and the wet of the winter. This winter, St Peter’s Church are making available their Church Hall. Ideally situated in the Town Centre, with space for up to a dozen rough-sleepers, the Hall will be the venue for this winter’s St Peter’s Guest House Project.
The idea is to welcome those in need, to serve them a hot meal, to spend time getting to know them, to seek to help them in ways appropriate to their needs, to offer them a comfortable and safe bed for the night, and then to offer them a warm breakfast in the morning. In other words, the idea is to treat them like guests.
In conjunction with Beacon House Ministries, The Guest House will open again on Thursday 14th December 2017.
