Volunteering Opportunities

In partnership with Coventry City Council and the Salvation Army, Coventry Churches are working together with the community to provide a night time shelter for rough sleepers and homeless over the Winter months (1st December - 31st March). 7 church venues in the City will operate from 7pm to 9am in 3 shifts over a 17 week period. Each venue serves a hot evening meal and a light breakfast and becomes a dormitory for up to 20 persons, sleeping on camp beds.

Volunteers are expected to give time to a few shifts, preferably on the very quiet but necessary night shift (ideal for reading/studying/writing).
