What we'd like to achieve:

Our vision is to mitigate the harm that sleeping rough does to people's health and safety, especially during the coldest months of the year. We aim to show the love of God to each of our guests through the way we welcome and care for them, although we do not push religion at our guests.

What matters to us and why we do it:

In the belief that God wants us all to live fulfilled lives, we put a high priority on respecting our guests. We work within a Christian ethos, and while not excluding guests or volunteers of other faiths or none, have the expectation that they will respect and abide by our values. We acknowledge that we share with all other major faiths, and people of no faith, a desire to help some of the most vulnerable in our society.


If you would like to help us in this venture, we would be so grateful and it will help us to continue providing twenty beds every night January to March, together with light supper and breakfast. This happens in the Oxford churches of several denominations. Last winter 57 people used our shelters and over half of them did not return to rough sleeping at the end of the project.

Your kindness will make a difference to the lives of the most vulnerable. From them, and from us, thank you.
