Robes Winter Shelter
Robes Winter Homeless Project is back and we need your help and support once again to get this going. Mostyh Road Methodist Church is back hosting guests each Friday evening and Saturday morning in the month of December to support the Robes Project with the help of our Circuit.
“Sleeping on the streets is tough during the summer, that it’s hard to fully imagine during the cold of the winter. Robes winter night shelter operates during the cold winter months to support rough sleepers in and around Southwark and Lambeth. We have continued to strive towards creating a family-like atmosphere within our shelters, to offer our guests a space of love and belonging. While our aim remains to ensure guests physical survival needs are being met, we are moving beyond to find tailored solutions in helping our guest find a pathway out of homelessness”.
Throughout December we will be hosting approximately 10 guests on Friday evenings,
Fri – 02 Dec Fri - 09 Dec Fri – 16 Dec Fri – 30 Dec
providing dinner, a warm place to sleep and breakfast the following morning,
Sat – 03 Dec Sat - 10 Dec Sat – 17 Dec Sat – 01 Jan
We are looking for volunteers to help support this initiative. Anyone who would like to come and host our guests, cook, stay overnight, make breakfast or be part of the clean-up crew will be warmly welcomed to help. Aside from time, we are also asking for donations of food and money to support the guests and build care packages.
WAYS YOU CAN HELP...
If you have any questions, or you want to submit your name for volunteering or to make a donation please contact Kizzie Bowman from Brixton Hill Methodist Church on…

CIRCUIT ANNUAL TRIP 2019
On July 20th a full coachload of Pilgrims from the Circuit set off for our day trip to Bath. As we drove westwards in the capable hands of our lovely driver the weather brightened and our spirits lifted. We had a little emergency when one of our number got stuck in his seat when the seatbelt jammed but after the driver freed him we continued on our way feeling very much like “our chains fell off” and looking forward to a wonderful day together.
Many of our number had not been to Bath before and were soon gazing at the beautiful honey coloured Georgian architecture as we drove into the City Centre and our drop off point close to the Abbey. We were there in time for lunch and we soon set-off in different directions to find some lunch and visit the City’s many lovely shops and attractions. In the afternoon we gathered at Bath Abbey for our guided tour and in three separate groups we went inside. We had to don hard hats and hi-viz jackets, because this was a tour with a difference! The abbey was part way through a £20 million-pound project to rebuild the ancient floor which over the centuries had dropped and become uneven. We went behind closed doors to see part of the Abbey where the floor had been lifted (along with the remains of 7,000 people buried underneath!). We saw how the foundations were being dug out and replaced with state-of-the-art underfloor heating powered by the natural hot springs under the City. We then went outside to the stonemason’s yard where the thousands of flagstones, many containing inscriptions and memorials to the dead, were being painstakingly restored. The tour was really fascinating, and we learned a lot about the Abbey’s history as well as its present role as a Parish Church and a place of witness and spirituality.
We finished the day in Bath with a visit to the Rev. David and Sarah Musgrave. We wondered what their neighbours must have thought as a giant Coach parked outside their house and 54 people turned up for tea! Their house is on a hill with beautiful views over Bath (see photo above) and their garden was absolutely enormous so there was plenty of room for us to enjoy our tea and cakes and hear all about their life in retirement. It was lovely to see them again looking so relaxed and happy.
Sadly, it was soon time to set out on our journey home but the drive back to London was full of laughter, thanks to the raffle, quiz and bingo games that Shirley had prepared for us. Everyone had a wonderful day out and even before we arrived back at Brixton Hill, we are already asking ourselves – where shall we go next year?! Watch this space!!!
