St Wilfrid’s Church drop-in centre

At St Wilfrid’s there are two projects to provide practical support to Preston’s homeless men and women.

Every Tuesday evening from 6.15pm to 7.15pm in St Wilfrid’s Parish Centre, a free hot meal, cakes and hot drink is provided. Sleeping bags, socks, gloves, toiletries and warm clothing are urgently needed for those sleeping rough or who have poorly heated accommodation.

The Wednesday Drop is in the Narthex of the Church from 6.30pm to 8.00pm. This is a weekly drop-in where clothes, shoes, sleeping bags and toiletries are provided to anyone in need.

Metanoia Project volunteers also spend time listening and chatting over a hot drink with those who attend.

All donations for the Food bank and St Wilfrid’s can be dropped off at the convent, OLSE or 3 Marlborough Drive (opposite the main entrance to OLSE church) or collection can be arranged by calling 07779 436279.

Thank you and may God Bless you and your family, always.
