Norwich training day for homeless ministries
Hope Into Action are proud to present another opportunity for local Christians to get involved with this growing ministry with a training day on April 22, open to all who want to find out more.
Do you have a heart to help others…but don’t know where to start?
Do you think homelessness is a growing issue we need to address?
Do you wish your Church were doing more to help the most vulnerable in society?
If so, you are invited to this exciting and interactive training day that will explain the Hope Into Action (HIA) model more. Suitable for any current partner church volunteers, anyone wanting to know more about HIA or thinking about getting involved. Maybe your church already has outreach and or ministry to the homeless and you’d like to feel more confident in your role? This day is for you too!
Hope into Action currently have five houses in Norwich - and they are growing and hoping for at least nine by the end of 2017! Each home houses and supports previously homeless people in partnership with the church.
Attendance does not commit you to volunteering, this is a separate process that takes place between you and your church – everything will be explained on the day and there will be plenty of time to ask questions.
A day of teaching, conversation and guidance, specifically tailored to empower and equip church volunteers as they support homeless people. Topics include: unpacking the homeless issue, boundaries, listening skills, the HIA model and safeguarding & emergency procedures.
Saturday April 22
Alexander Room, Church Alley, NR2 4SN (at the back of Princes St URC)
