Prayer Points for the Winter Night Shelter - Week Three

The Broxbourne Winter Night Shelter started on 7th January 2019 and is running until 3rd March.

  • Praise God that the night shelter is continuing to go well. The number of guests each night is gradually building up, starting with two in the first week, now up to five in the third week.
  • The volunteers continue to work well together, and there has been a good atmosphere at each venue. Guests have been grateful for gloves, hats, socks and scarves, provided through the Foodbank.
  • Please pray for the venue coordinators and the core organising team, that they will have wisdom in making decisions about how to manage specific needs of guests.
  • Pray that in this cold weather, all those who need this service will find out about how to access it.
  • Give thanks for the volunteers, who have been making the guests feel welcomed and valued.

Winter Night Shelter Prayers - Week Two

The Broxbourne Winter Night Shelter has started and is running until 3rd March.

Praise God that the night shelter has started well. For the first week, there were two guests, both very grateful for a warm bed for at night. Three guests at the beginning of the second week, with more potentially coming soon. The volunteers have worked well together, and there has been a good atmosphere at each venue.
Please pray for each new guest as they arrive, that they will feel welcomed and valued.
Pray also for the volunteers, that they will enjoy the experience and for the venue coordinators, that they will have the stamina they need for the full 8 weeks.

For more details of the shelter, see the WNS webpage

Christmas Outreach Thanks!

A big thank you to all who helped at our various Christmas activities this year. It was fantastic to be part of Hoddesdon Loves Christmas, both the craft activity/prayer tree during the day and the parade in the evening (what a success that was, never seen so many people!) with our star. The Lebkuchen distribution was again a great success, it was lovely to return back to local businesses we gave them too last year and to extend it to Broxbourne and Wormley as well.
