SERVING THE HOMELESS COMMUNITY IN A CRISIS
When lockdown was announced back at the end of March,
our day centre for homeless people had to dramatically change

ABUSED AND VULNERABLE, BUT GROWING IN CHRIST
James* had a difficult relationship with church. He was
diagnosed with autism and schizophrenia and after going to a
church for many years, in his 20s he became involved in a cult
where he had negative and damaging experiences.
But our missionary Shane knew none of this when he first
met James, and starting running Bible studies with him and
his friends. As trust grew between the group, James’ story
emerged, and in time Shane invited him to church.

school. Growing up in the shadow of Grenfell Tower, he lost
friends in the devastating fire three years ago.
A new chapter for Husk
