Kingdom Way Seeking Volunteers for Weekend Drop In for Homeless

Dear All

Kingdom Way Trust wondered if your church could promote this – many of you will have been volunteers at the Night Shelter and will be familiar with this type of volunteering. 

As you may have heard, Kingdom Way Trust (who amongst other things ran the former weekend drop-in at the Seaside Community Hub) is taking over use of the Christian Resources Centre premises on Seaside Road (the Christian Bookshop building).

KWT has decided that at weekends, the premises will be used as a weekend drop-in for the street ‘community’ (ie the homeless, those in temporary accommodation, etc). The plan is that following some modifications, the premises will be ready to open as a drop-in from Saturday 5th March 2022. The intention is to staff the drop-in from 10.00am until 4.00pm every Saturday and Sunday, with the drop-in open to guests from 10.30am to 3.30pm.

Similar to the pre-Covid drop-in at the Seaside Community Hub, the centre will provide a safe place for guests to hang out, be served tea/coffee, read a newspaper, etc. However, light snacks will be provided instead of a hot lunch.

The main purpose of this note is to see whether you would wish to be involved as a volunteer. There will be a supervisor on duty, supported by two volunteers who would be based within the servery area. Volunteer shifts could run either for 3 hours (10.00am-1.00pm or 1.00-4.00pm) or for the full day (10.00am-4.00pm).

I’d be delighted to hear from you if you think you might like to help. If you’d like to chat it over, please do call me on 07484 152210.

With grateful thanks; and wishing you every blessing for 2022!
