Mental health and homeless day
October 10 is both World Homeless Day and Mental Health Awareness. How do staff at London City Mission’s Webber Street Day centre support people who are homeless and struggle with poor mental health?
CAREFUL STEPS TOWARDS LIFE WITH JESUS
One of the first times our missionary met Helen*, she was in the midst of a mental health crisis and threatening to take her own life.
PAST CHILDHOOD TRAUMA, NOW OPENING UP TO JESUS
Five years ago, an older, disabled man called Joe* arrived at
our centre in Dagenham and quietly sat in the background.
Vision for London
More than ever London needs to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ.
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
– and fast.
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.
