Warm Wednesdays

Your donation to our Warm Wednesdays will help to keep those who live, work, and study in our community warm over the coming months

This winter keeping warm is more costly than ever. That’s why we are offering a warm space in the heart of Southsea every Wednesday for anyone to use in order to save on the heating at home. You're welcome to drop in to work, to socialise, for a warm lunch, or just for a cup of tea or coffee.

We offer Wi-Fi, and comfy chairs and will have board games, jigsaw puzzles and some crafts on offer too.

There will be free tea/coffee available throughout the day and a soup and bread lunch served between 12.00 and 2pm (donations welcome). There is no need to book.

THROUGHOUT THE YEAR
SUNDAY MORNINGS THAT ARE ACCESSIBLE AND MEANINGFUL: SIMPLE BUT NOT SUPERFICIAL.

Offering contemporary Christian songs and some hymns, a talk or activity that applies the Bible to living life today.
