"Homeless Not Helpless
Currently Mark heads up the work on the streets early on Sunday mornings now across the UK.
We now have 4 street pastors who work in London, Manchester, Liverpool and Birmingham.
Mike is responsible for London, Simon for Liverpool and John for Manchester with Mark looking after Birmingham.
The team pastors to regular groups of homeless people and also individuals.
Instead of providing food or money we supply our emergency packs - which include a booklet, soap, toothbrush and toothpaste, wet wipes, deodorant, sleeping bags etc. Crucial items that are needed by anyone on the streets.
Mark said "we give emergency packs, and clothing and we have campaigns - such as personal attack alarms for women, emergency water proof sleeping bags in winter, and mobile phones for communication purposes. We pray over them and with them and for them. We also try to mediate if they have issues with relationships that may have caused their homelessness".
We are looking for any volunteers from a Christian church background who would be willing to pastor to the homeless once a month in their area.
We need as many as possible to enable us to get to a situation where we are having weekly visits in all target areas.
Particular areas of concern are:-
