Churches in Newport
E-Bulletin October 2021
This monthly Bulletin is sent out to help all the churches be more aware of our shared activities, and to keep people informed of news and events.
News from Amazing Grace Spaces
Homeless Sunday is an opportunity for us to raise awareness within our churches and faith-groups of homelessness and issues connected with it. This year, “Homeless Sunday” is on 10th October and the theme is “The church response to homelessness in 2022 and beyond”. How can the church help people affected by homelessness in the new, post-pandemic world? www.housingjustice.org.uk has resources that can be used on that Sunday.
Grace House news: We are thankful to God for providing us with a ladies’ house and we currently have four ladies in it recovering from domestic violence, drug and alcohol addiction. One young lady is only 24 but she has moved over 50 times in her life. We thank God that they have time and support to recover. We work with them in their uniqueness, the way in which God created them. One lady has started a hair and beauty course. One is working, one is volunteering, and one is hoping to start an Open University course soon. They are all miracles, and we thank God for them. Grace house is a safe place, and we look for opportunities for the ladies to thrive before moving on to independence.
Emergency Sleep Pods continue to go to places throughout the country. We believe they work best in churches where the church family care for those waiting for accommodation. There is still much to do for people affected by homelessness in our city.
