After a few weeks of being taken in by different churches the Wednesday Club now has a permanent home again. We are back with Crossway Church, now based at the Crossway Christian Centre, a new purpose built building. Many thanks to Bermondsey Central Hall and St George the Martyr Church for taking us in for those transition weeks.
The Wednesday Club is a weekly club offering a hot meal, promoting social inclusion and another chance for guests to catch up with our advice workers.
We also have visitors from the local community come along and speak to guests about opportunities and services they might benefit from. We have been lucky enough to have Samaritans talk about the emotional support they provide, Cardboard Citizens have invited guests to join their theatre workshops, Be-Enriched have cooked up meals with guests using surplus ingredients, plus many more visitors.
With trips to Sky Garden and the Planetarium, a game of scrabble or a film screening, there is always something for each guest to feel welcome.
