We were delighted to host a ‘Homeless Sunday’ service on Sunday, 22nd January at 11am as part of our Morning Worship.
Homeless Sunday is an ecumenical opportunity for the church in England, Wales and Scotland to unite together to connect, commit and challenge homelessness in society. During our service this morning, Bishop James Langstaff led us in a symbolic action, not just this day but in the coming days and weeks to remember and pray for those who are homeless in our community.
Alison Gelder, Chief Executive of Housing Justice said:
“This year’s Homeless Sunday campaign has mobilised so many churches to pray for those who are suffering the effects of homelessness in their own community. But, it is privilege to have a specific prayer and worship focus at the heart of Westminster, so our thanks to all those who have made this morning’s service possible. The service this morning has certainly given a greater confidence that we are committed to making #HomelessWelcome.
Revd Dr Martyn Atkins, Superintendent Minister & Team Leader at Methodist Central Hall Westminster said,
“It was a privilege to host Homeless Sunday at Methodist Central Hall, Westminster, right here at the heart of our nation. Homelessness is live, looming and serious issue in our capital city. Methodist Central Hall Westminster remains committed to and involved with the support and care of homeless people.”
