Merton Winter Night Shelter started in 2011 as a project bringing together faith groups and others from across the local area to provide a warm place indoors for people to sleep in the coldest months of the year.
Holy Trinity is one of 14 venues for this project. Guests receive an evening meal and a time to socialise, a warm place to sleep, and breakfast in the morning. Once they have their place, they can return each night for the whole 3 months the project runs.
It's been amazing to see a huge number of volunteers - over 200 - from across the area give time to this wonderful venture. Volunteers speak movingly of the way this practical support builds relationships and is a tangible way of living out faith in daily life. For more details see here.
