We aim to build a supportive community and explore faith by using symbol, art, drama, sign language and music, using a ‘symbolic catechesis’ approach, developed to meet the different stages of faith, different cultures and different intellectual abilities in our diverse parishes. Our members currently range in age from teens to 70+ and reflect this diversity.

Whatever their reasons for coming, all are welcome at the Shelter. We open not just for rough sleepers, but for all vulnerable and needy people and those who often feel ignored.

Support is also given in other ways.
