Caring for the Homeless

As Christians we believe that a secure and safe home is a basic human right.
Unfortunately there are many in our society who fall through the net; they may find themselves either homeless or in insecure accommodation for a variety of reasons.

We are delighted that last December, following the pandemic, the Milton Keynes Winter Night Shelters were able to open once more. Our guests tell us what a lifeline it is to have somewhere safe and warm to sleep, as well as the real comfort provided by the kindness and compassion of our amazing volunteers.

For ten years, until the pandemic forced us to close, members of St Michael’s contributed in various ways to the shelters and in particular to the Sunday night shelter. From November to March every Sunday, the team based at the Roman Catholic Church Hall  provide a warm and friendly environment for many of the homeless of MK.
