Boaz Trust Night Shelter Update

Volunteers at St Peters’ Church Boaz night shelter

Due to the Coronavirus situation, the City Council has kindly provided accommodation for all the men..

We are continuing to provide a evening meal and breakfast once a week (and other essentials) with help from our friends at St Margaret’s Church, Burnage. Harriet is coordinating.

Please pray for the men at this time – particularly in view of the Coronavirus pandemic.

It has not yet been decided whether to restart in October 2020. However, you may wish to consider whether you would like help on Thursday night if we do continue in October.

Thank you to the mosque and Turkish restaurant for previously helping with food when the night shelter was at St Peter’s.

If the night shelter restarts in October there are likely to be opportunities to help with:
  • Driving the minibus
  • Setting up (evening meal or breakfast)
  • Overnight supervision (men only)
  • Laundry

The Boaz Night Shelter is for men who are asylum seekers who would otherwise be sleeping on the street. The men are referred to the Boaz Trust who select 12 men for the Night Shelter. Other churches in Manchester cover the other nights. It generally operates from October to April.

If you are a member of a local church and would like to help, please speak to George or Harriet.

We may require duvets / pillows etc. but have a better idea nearer the time.

If you would like to give a financial donation please put in envelope labelled “Night Shelter” or contact us.
