Night shelter for homeless people
Starting on Wednesday 8th January 2020 we will be working with other local churches to offer a safe place for men to have a meal and stay the night. This is part of a project organised by the Brent faith forum and will be offering a different place to stay in Brent for 10 weeks at different venues each night. If you can help with preparing meals please get in touch! The venue is Claremont Free Church where our minister is moderator.
Unlike Fight Club, the first rule of Meal Club is tell everyone about Meal Club! This is on the first Wednesday each month. The next one is Wednesday 5th February 2020 at 7.00pm-8.30pm. (Food is free, but let us know if you're coming via the 'get in touch' link. Volunteers needed...
