Our upcoming parish forum, 'Homelessness: Preparing for 2020' on Tuesday 24 September 2019 will bring together people to begin to prepare for next Winter, and to make the connections with other parishes, churches and groups that will make next year’s Winter Shelter a success in as many areas as can be reached.
