Dio­cese of Manch­ester

The Church of England - - THE CHURCH IN ENGLAND -

Greater To­gether Manch­ester, a joint ven­ture be­tween the Dio­cese of Manch­ester and Church Ur­ban Fund, has brought to­gether a group of six churches to pro­vide overnight shel­ter to home­less men who would oth­er­wise be sleep­ing rough.

The scheme, named the Greater Manch­ester Win­ter Night Shel­ter, is be­ing pi­loted from Jan­uary – March 2016 and needs over 100 vol­un­teers to help en­sure it runs safely and smoothly. Vol­un­teers can opt to cover shifts in the evening, overnight and in the morn­ing.
