Southend Churches Winter Night Shelters 2018-19

The eighth season of the Southend Churches Winter Night Shelters started on Monday 3rd December and will run until breakfast on Monday 25th March – 16 weeks.

The 7 host churches operate in partnership with HARP, Southend Borough Council and Love Southend.

Each church is open for one night a week and provides a hot meal, a warm bed and a light breakfast for 20 guests; although, in very cold weather, we can usually squeeze a few more in!Southend Churches Winter Nigh Shelters Meal

People wanting to sleep at one of the churches need to register at HARP’s Bradbury Centre in York Road (Monday – Friday only). They will be assessed and, if room allows, will be referred to the Winter Night Shelters; If someone is not referred, then they will probably not be admitted to a shelter.
