How Can You Help?
- If you know of a young man who could benefit from this project, talk to Simon and Ann Waters or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
- If you would like to support the house, whether it is by helping in the house for an hour or so a week, with the administration, or with the upkeep of the house, again please talk to us or email as above.
- We also need to have 10 “Good Samaritans”, superstars who will support the core costs of Green Pastures by donating at least £5 a month. Prayer is free and we could do with lots of that too!! Click here for more info.
Our four residents are very settled and we now count them as friends. The team has had to reduce in size due to the COVID lockdown. Those who are less vulnerable have taken over the roles of others. Aaron at the Acorn Centre has taken over the budgeting sessions and we are looking at working with CAP (Christians Against Poverty) to further develop this.
Over these first six months we have recognised that poor mental health is one of the biggest difficulties that many people face. We are exploring various avenues of support and help with the hope of creating an effective, life changing support system. We would hope to use this both in Beacon Housing and beyond.
From an empty shell to a vibrant home; what a change we’ve seen! There are now four residents in the house. A wall has been moved, rooms painted, smoke and heat detectors fitted, fire doors trimmed and mounted, furniture obtained (much of it donated) and internet set up.
A huge thanks to all who have got stuck in: Janet, Andy, Mark, John & Sarah (Hart Plain Church), Marie, Marcus, Lacey, Alan, Scott, Bea, Margaret, and apologies to any I’ve forgotten. Peter is having regular budgeting sessions with the lads, Scott is getting them involved with the Acorn Centre, Marie is helping with CVs and Ann is helping sort out Housing Benefit. An amazing team!
Please be praying for the house, that it would be a place of healing, a place of community and a place of hope.
