Every Saturday we have Safehaven: a meal for members of the street community, and our aim is to provide dignity, safety, and community for our guests. We serve about 100 meals in the Church, and have around 40 people helping out each week.
Here are some recent comments by our guests:
‘Good food, smiling volunteers and nice, warm place for homeless’
‘To all the helpers here a very big thanks for your warmth and generosity’
‘I think you are all fantastic in what you all do. A life saver. The food is great – very tasty. Thank you, thank you!!’
‘I am so very grateful for the food, friendship and support I have received from Safehaven I hope that you continue to go from strength to strength. Thank you.’
Every Thursday, during term time, 1.30-3.30pm we open our doors to vulnerable women. This safe space is a chance for women to come and hang out, to get warm, to chat, to be listened to, to have something to eat, and simply just be women.
Safehaven women offer a cosy, safe space, homemade meals, tea and cake, hair dressing, manicure and pedicures, facials, exercise, craft sessions, help with writing letters, a place to learn new skills and a clothing bank, and much more! For more information email email@example.com
Every Friday, during term time, 1.30-3.30pm we open our doors to men from the street community. This is a safe place to hang out, chat, pray, play music, and relax. There are art and music lessons, clothes, haircuts and showers. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org
During the winter months we join with six other churches to for the Brighton and Hove Churches Night Shelter. We are covering Saturday nights, hosting 15 rough sleepers overnight at St Peter's, giving them a hot meal and a warm place to stay.
If you would like to help out in any way, whether it is with the cooking, or serving our guests, or for more information, email Jonny (email@example.com)
