Would you like to help with Bethany Edinburgh Care Shelter?
Bethany provides a warm, safe place to sleep and a hot meal for the homeless every night from November-April. We are one of around 80 churches that help by cooking and serving a meal on three separate nights. We also provide a driver for the Bethany minibus to shuttle the homeless from the centre of Edinburgh to the church where they stay overnight. Last year between 30 and 45 people used this service each night. If you would like to join a team of 6 or 7 of us to cook, drive, or serve food please have a chat with Jeff Hodgson or Helen Palmer or sign up on the sheets in the hall. Other ways to help are by donation of specific food items or money and of course to pray for the homeless in our city. Our nights for this year are Thursday 6th November, 4th December and 22nd January.
