housed by GP.

Our partners are groups that have approached Green Pastures with a desire to house the homeless in their area. Each partner agrees to house and care for the homeless in their locality, in properties identified by the partner, and purchased by Green Pastures. Our partners provide pastoral care to their residents, administer the project and maintain the property.
 
A Challenge to the Church
What does it mean to partner with Green Pastures? What is the application process? What does partnership cost? You've probably got lots of questions about partnership and in this section we try to give a full picture of what its all about! 


The Bible speaks to us as Christians about our practical service for Christ. Jesus said “I was in prison and you visited me, I was homeless and you housed me”. Paul was “eager to help the poor” and John reminded us that “If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him?”.In Southport these scriptures were challenging to us. In 1999 we were on the threshold of the 21st Century and there were still homeless people in our town. The Samaritan put his hand in his own pocket, paid the innkeeper and committed to paying all expenses until the man recovered. Following this example, one member of our church put up a small pension of £6,000 and another church member borrowed £20,000 on her property. We purchased our first property to house the homeless! God did the rest!In 2004 we accepted our first partner and by 2009 we had 13 active Partners. Today we have partners all over the UK housing hundreds of people. We are excited to see the growth of God’s Kingdom through the provision of the most basic needs to the marginalised of our society. By the church working together, Christ is alive, and where the politicians fail, the Church can succeed.
 
The Partner
The Bible talks about Christians being committed to serving one another. Our partners are groups that have approached Green Pastures with a desire to house the homeless in their area. Each partner agrees to house and care for the homeless in their locality, in properties identified by the partner, and purchased by Green Pastures. The partner provides pastoral care to their residents, administer the project and maintains the property. Through their volunteer team each partner assists the residents with managing bills, family advice, claiming benefits, training, accessing employment and more. Most importantly our partners pray for our residents and through all their support the love of Christ is shared in word and deed. The partner is responsible for minor repairs and pays a monthly lease to Green Pastures for the property. 
 
Green Pastures
Green Pastures provides the expertise to help each partner get started. We walk each partner through the partner application, purchase the property, provide ongoing support and update each partner on recent developments. Income from the property covers the cost of lease payments, repairs, building insurance and Green Pastures central administration costs. We are here to serve and release each partner into caring for the homeless and those in most need.
