Glass Door 20th anniversary service
October 13 @ 3:00 pm
Glass Door invites the community to join us at a church service celebrating twenty years of shelter and support in the community. Saint Luke’s Church in Chelsea (Sydney Street, London, SW3 6NH) will be hosting an evensong service and celebration on Homeless Sunday – 13 October 2019 at 3pm, followed by a reception with tea and cakes.
All are welcome. There is no need to RSVP. Please do come along and bring your friends and family.
Homeless Sunday (October 13th) has been part of the Christian calendar for more than a quarter of a century. It is an opportunity for churches of all denominations and people of all faiths to unite and show solidarity with those experiencing homelessness and to reflect and plan practical action on homelessness.
There were just seven night shelters operating across the Glass Door (then WLCHC) network in 1999. Today there are 29 and soon to be more across the boroughs of Kensington and Chelsea, Hammersmith and Fulham, Wandsworth and Richmond-Upon-Thames.
The service will be in recognition of the importance of community in supporting men and women find a way beyond homelessness.
