Description

With increased support and greater success in helping rough sleepers into accommodation during Sleepsafe 2017/18 we are aiming to host our new Sleepsafe Mission 2018 - 19 for six months, with existing and new churches hosting Sleepsafe for one whole week at a time. We are calling all churches in Bournemouth who are interested in hosting Sleepsafe for one week to book their interest now. (Closing date to register your interest is 29th May 2018)

Benefits for churches:

  • Improve relationships between church and rough sleepers
  • Increase opportunity to demonstrate and share the gospel
  • Improve inter-church working (Buddy teams / working in partnership)

Benefits to our guests:

  • Better Health - not having to walk miles to a different venue each night *
  • Burden-free - leaving bags at the church rather than carrying them all day helps reduce stigma surrounding rough-sleeping
  • Stay Safe Activities - access to local church and buddy teams during daytimes
  • Improve trust between guests and the church/their community
  • Improve engagement with professional services and potential 'Move-on' possibilities


* The average stay in Sleepsafe for a guest is 3 weeks. With a different venue each night, guests had to 'move home' 21 times last year. At a weekly venue, the same guest would only have to move 3 times.

If you are interested in this new & exciting mission, register as soon as possible & we will be in touch the first week in June! God bless & thank you!
