Supporting Streetwork in Advent

homelessTHE Centre for Living Christianity is interested in exploring faith as a way of life, not as a set of beliefs abstracted from it. That means thought and action go together.

We are therefore very pleased to report an Advent initiative happening on Wednesday 12th December at St John’s Church in Edinburgh (corner of Princes Street and Lothian Road), which is CLiC’s base.

The team who bring you the Festival of Spirituality and Peace each year have linked up with homelessness charity Streetwork for a ‘street porridge sale’ from 8am to 1pm that day, outside St John’s.

Money raised will go to help the activities of Streetwork, who offer direct support for homeless people. It will also raise further awareness of the issue, and of the plight of many people over the Christmas season… those for whom “no room at the inn” is not a quaint biblical story, but a daily reality.

For more information about this specific event, contact Annika Wolf, St John’s Church, Edinburgh, EH2 4BJ. Email: info@festivalofspirituality.org.uk Phone: 0131 2284249
