Night Shelter Project
Following a 2
week pilot last winter a Night Shelter project for rough sleepers
will run from January to March 2019.
The project is being co-ordinated by small Management Committee chaired by
Father Charlie Annis from Oldham Parish Church and is modelled
on a project that has run successfully in Manchester for 3 years.
will work as follows:
Seven churches have provisionally
offered to take part including
Hollins & East Oldham from the O & S Circuit.
Hollins will take Friday and East Oldham Saturday night.
Each church offers its premises as a venue on one night each week.
project is for men only and the aim is to provide accommodation
for up to 15 each night.
will register at the Street Angels premises on
Hunters Lane in Oldham town centre
and then be transported to
the venue for the night from 7pm.
small team at each church will meet and greet them,
feed them a simple meal, and socialise with them until lights out at 10pm.
minimum of 3 volunteers will stay with the men overnight.
small team will provide a simple breakfast from 7am
and the men will depart by 9am.
We are now beginning to recruit volunteers for Hollins and East Oldham.
We need a range of volunteers from those managing the shelter overnight to
those helping prepare a meal on Saturday evening and breakfast on Sunday morning.
