prayer-cardSunday 22 January is Homeless Sunday. 

Homeless Sunday is a way for churches to demonstrate solidarity with people experiencing homelessness in the UK, to challenge the conditions that give rise to high levels of homelessness, and to celebrate the work of the churches and others in tackling homelessness at all levels, particularly locally.

Here at YMCA Black Country Group, we have developed some resources for churches to use as part of their service to mark Homeless Sunday and raise awareness of this important issue.

The resource available include a myth-busting quiz which can be used in an all-age setting, a prayer activity, prayers of intercession, and a printable prayer card that people can take away with them.

We are also offering a member of the YMCA team to attend services and meetings to give a short talk on the work YMCA does with homeless and vulnerable young people.

If you are interested in using any of these resources, please get in touch by emailing rowena.wilding@ymcabc.org.uk.
