This year’s Winter Night Shelter is under way

Eden Gate is partnering with 11 local churches to provide a winter night shelter. It opened on 25th November and will run for 18 weeks. Please pray for all the guests, host churches and helpers. For further information contact 01633 243235 / [email protected].

A new job opportunity has just come up: Night Shelter Project Co-ordinator

Eden Gate is embarking on an ambitious project to provide emergency accommodation throughout the year and have successfully applied for funding that will allow us to employ two part time or one full time worker(s) to co-ordinate the new project. Initially the role will be for 12 months, but we hope this would be extended upon achieving additional funding. The job involves booking guests into the shelter and managing the referral process, and ensuring that anyone who stays in the shelter abides by our ethos and treats everyone respectfully.

To apply, please visit to view the Job Description and complete the application form. Return form to  [email protected]. 01633243235.
