Revd. Mike Barter reflects on the blessings and the challenges of the season for Ealing Churches Winter Night Shelter, which they have run as a “mixed model” this year to continue to support street homeless guests.

Kings X Church talk to us about their recent volunteer training on Universal Credit, organised by the Compassionate Communities Team. How it covered both practical support, and the design of the system as a social justice issue. Resources are now available for other church communities.
