Update from Lodging House Mission

Deacon Claire Herbert Chaplain LHM

Dear Supporters,

It is the season of Harvest and a time to give thanks.  Here at Lodging House Mission we have many supporters who have stood with us through this challenging period while our day centre remains closed.  We are grateful to all those who continue to support us.

There are a few upcoming events to let you know about. Firstly, as we intimated in our previous newsletter our Harvest Appeal 2020 looks a little different this year.  Details of how to support this appeal are below and we thank you in advance for your support of our appeal. Our Chaplain has made a short video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IFsNEuFCN6I ) also available via the  Lodging House Mission’s YouTube channel.  Congregations can share this through online meetings or as part of a gathered service of worship.  

Our annual Homelessness Sunday Service was due to take place on 25th October with the Moderator Rev Dr. Martin Fair delivering an address.  While our buildings remain closed, the Moderator has kindly agreed to record his address and we shall make this available on our YouTube channel in due course.

This year while our buildings remain closed we are providing the facility to purchase Christmas cards online in addition to our normal service. Look out for the link (coming soon) and share as widely as you can through your church publications and organisations so that everyone is able to benefit from this popular service.

As autumn plans and preparations get under way, we ask for your continued prayers for,

  • the Lodging House Mission Family; our staff team, our dedicated volunteers and our agency partners as we look towards winter planning.
  • our vulnerable client group and all who are recipients of LHM’s emergency support.
  • wisdom and compassion as partner agencies meet and plan for the Winter Night Shelter
  • our wider church family as they celebrate Harvest season and support our Harvest Appeal.

Let us look to the assurance of God’s blessings amidst all the uncertainty.
