Homeless Sunday takes place on the closest Sunday to 10th October each year, meaning it falls this year it actually falls on the 10th itself! It's a date that's been in the Christian diary for a long time and gives us an opportunity to reflect on the issues surrounding homelessness in the UK and galvanise people to get involved in the solution.
Homeless Sunday is about bringing to light the very real situations that homeless people and those threatened with homelessness face every day. Homelessness is an issue that affects many people, but is also an issue that many don't understand or know deeply.
At Green Pastures, we exist to equip the Church to end homelessness and a big part of that is educating as many people as possible on the issue so that they can be involved in the fight. We've developed a resource pack that you can use to encourage those around you to get involved!
When you sign up using our contact form to the right, you can look forward to receiving our free Homeless Sunday pack. This pack is intended to resource you to be able to present a convincing, engaging and effective presentation to your Church, community group or other group. The presentation will shine a light on homelessness and encourage your audience to get involved in the fight!
The Pack will contain:
1. The latest statistics on homelessness
2. A pre-made presentation
3. Videos encouraging your Church or group to get involved
4. Some Green Pastures resident story videos
5. A T-shirt for you to wear during the presentation
6. Flyers to hand out afterwards
We'll provide you with two step-by-step outlines with specific guidance on how to structure your presentation to make the most of the time that you have.
We recommend speaking with the person responsible for your services as soon as possible so that you can ensure you get a slot to be able to present as well as getting an understanding of how much time you will have.
The more that you can share your own experience and your own passion, the better connection you will have.
And, of course, get in touch if you have any further questions!
Enter your details below and we will send you your free Homeless Sunday pack. The pack will arrive via email and your t-shirt and flyers will be posted to the address you provide.
