"We never planned on housing the homeless. Instead we found that when we prayed for our community, people who were in need of accommodation kept coming to church. Green Pastures have been a miraculous partner who have helped us meet the needs around us."
David Spencer, Project Manager

Overview

Pye Green Christian Centre houses single men who have been made homeless in the Cannock Chase area.  We provide practical support, mentoring and training which has a goal of providing a hope and prosperous future.

Achieved to Date

To date we have helped dozens of men move into independent living.  Of those who have a previous criminal conviction 95% don't ever re offend.  Half of our past residents move into full time employment in industries including charity work, carpentry, and social work.

Why we do this

We have a passion to see people who are forgotten and lost restored to a place where they know their identity and self worth.

Future plans

Over the next 2 years we will double our capacity of supported accommodation and provide 3 'move on' single bedroom lets.  

green pastures review

What a very wonderful and totally unique thing Pye Green Christian Centre in Cannock is. It was planted back in 1990 by Dennis and Joan Spencer. They “have a huge passion to reach those who don’t know God yet and help them find a relationship with their creator.” In practical terms this means that in addition to their informal friendly church meetings each Sunday; Dennis and Joan also reach out through the provision of a range of other activities. We have been delighted to have partnered with Pye Green Christian Centre for quite some years and through this relationship Dennis has been able to provide homes and support for homeless and vulnerable people. When you visit the “Centre” the great love Dennis and Joan have for their Creator, Lord and Master is palpable. A thing such as advancing age does not stop them being willing servants to do the work the Lord calls them for and this is very much reflected in the genuine love that they have for all – in particular those who have not yet heard the “Good News”.
