Update 3/4/20 We hope this video will help you see how we are responding during this Crisis, Since recording please find important updates about the service we are providing and how you can get in touch about practical donations.

During this Covid 19 crisis our priority is referring rough sleepers into Hotels and other accommodation in the City so that they can self-isolate and stay safe, ensuring they receive much needed food and toiletries, we hope you will join our plea for prayer and other support if possible.

 

Every day our team are cooking 300 meals; breakfasts, lunches and hot evening meals seven days a week to rough sleepers in accommodation.

In addition we’re also supporting 27 people with a history of street homelessness in private tenancies as part of our Barnabus Resettlement program. Our support team are in touch by phone offering food parcels and other practical items via co-ordinated deliveries. But also vitally as above encouraging and supporting them on the phone providing much needed mental, emotional and / or spiritual support to alleviate heightened anguish and fear.

Our Barnabus charity van is also out 5 days a week receiving and delivering food and essential health and hygiene items to people in accommodation.

If you can help with practical donations please don’t deliver those to our offices instead please email [email protected] or if you would like to make a £ donation please click on our donate button.

We pray you will be safe and give thanks for every gift, we believe this is a great opportunity to take our message of hope to those in need, thank you for supporting us, together we can transform Lives

God bless from all the team at Barnabus


We believe in the transforming power of prayer to restore and bring; healing, salvation, freedom and hope to our friends experiencing homelessness. We see people of many different faiths at different stages of their spiritual journey. Many have complex needs stemming from; addictions, poor mental health, abuse, trauma and grief including ex service veterans and those without family.

We pray for our friends every morning and before each session. We also hold a weekly time of prayer and worship at our Drop-in with an open invite for anyone who wishes to attend. Our quiet space is available for personal prayer and we've just started an Alpha course.

Please download our prayer guides below. If you or your church would like to receive our prayer news and updates please sign up here, you can unsubscribe at any time.

We’re also always grateful for volunteers, support with our weekly prayer and worship, practical donations or fundraising and financial gifts in support of our work in the City.

Luke 4:18-19

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”

 

Matthew 25:35-40

 

‘For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

 Then they asked ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

 The Lord will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
