Pilgrim Hearts, who have run the Night Shelter in Bracknell for the last three years opened their doors from 1st December 2018 until 29th March 2019.
Each night a different church will provide shelter, bed and food to those homeless who have a ticket. Citizens Advice Bracknell and District can provide tickets through the registration process. Other places to register are the Priestwood Drop In, New Hope, the Kerith Centre or Bracknell Forest Borough Council.
Once registered with one of the above, guests can turn up at the church hosting that night at the opening time (7:30 pm) with an admission ticket. It is alcohol and drug free. If you leave during the night you will not be able to be re-admitted. The evening meal is usually at 8.30 pm and breakfast before leaving time at about 8 am.
Each church has appointed a Coordinator who heads up a team of volunteers who operate in three shifts. The first group welcomes, books in and serves an evening meal, the second remain whilst the guests sleep, (and can sleep themselves), the third group prepares breakfast and closes down after breakfast when the guests leave.
The venues this year are:
Whilst not being able to provide a roof, some daytime limited help is available. The “Drop In” at St Andrew’s Church in Priestwood Court Road, Priestwood, Bracknell RG42 1TU.
It is open on Mondays from 12.30 – 2pm and Thursdays from 11 am till after 2 pm and the team are available for a warm welcome, hot drinks, a hot meal and a listening ear.
It provides help with problems, training, a signposting service to direct you to available and suitable providers of assistance, and a place to write letters, job applications etc as well as providing an address for your correspondence.
Remember – Citizens Advice Bracknell and District can provide tickets through the registration process for the Night Shelter.
