green pastures review

We are so excited to hear the stories of transformation coming out of the Dwelling Place, supported by Hope Church, Basingstoke. Some of the residents are getting involved with church-based activities which is awesome. Founded by Liz Howe The Dwelling Place is now in the safe hands of Lorraine Anstey. Lorraine is approaching the project with the same infectious enthusiasm she used in running this year’s winter night shelter in Basingstoke. The residents love all the little extras and special touches that Lorraine organises, like cream tea in the garden and all the ingredients for a Sunday roast dinner for them to cook together- brilliant! We love the way Lorraine is getting all the House Groups involved in The Dwelling Place. She visits each home group to inspire them as to how they can get involved in the life of the project. Loraine’s management team are incredibly faithful and pool their skills to provide a wonderful home for the residents.
