Homeless seems to be a ever incleasing issue in towns and cities acrss Wales. Each year Housing Justice organise Homeless Sunday. 2018's event will take place on Sunday 28th January.
Homeless Sunday is a chance for Churches and Christian groups from across the country join together to pray, reflect and plan practical action on homelessness, but also for a united christian voice to offer solidarity and be a prophetic voice for change.
Here are the ways you can get involved;
- Request a speaker for your Homeless Sunday service (speakers are limited and dealt with on a first come first served basis)
- Support Housing Justice through a donation
We want this to be the biggest Homeless Sunday ever, for Christians across the United Kingdom to be aware of the growing homelessness crises in Britain, to increase the numbers active in addressing it and to send a message to policy makers that Christians are adamant that in the fifth richest economy in world, no one should be without a home that truly meets their needs.
Please remember to tell us if you plan to hold an event or make Homeless Sunday the theme for your service.
In Newport Caroline Johnson has long had an active concern for the homeless, and they commend this particular national focus to local churches to observe this year. Caroline writes “There is a growing need of homelessness and limited one-bedded accommodation in Newport, and it would be good for us as churches to pray into this situation on this date.” There is then the opportunity to come together the next evening, 29th January, at St. Paul’s church to share prayers and reflections together, to be more Aware of homelessness, Active in tackling it, and Adamant together that homelessness must end.
