On the 7th day of Night Shelter week…

After one last joyful evening and morning together, we said a sad farewell to our guests, praised God for a GOOD week, and went off to rest 🙂

Night Shelter day 6

This morning’s Eucharist was a moving symbol of the reality we’ve been sharing all week – the kingdom of heaven is a great big party! And also a reminder that the party isn’t complete until love joy and justice ‘kiss’ and fill the earth…

Thanks be to God for another brilliant evening of meeting and eating. Super tasty pasta carbonara thanks to Lorea and Chris, and homemade choc-chip cookies courtesy of Sheraz and Raadhiyah. Mostly Raadhiyah 🙂

Another cheery evening of food and fun and friendship-building! Big thanks to Janet from St Michael’s Headingley who cooked us supper, to Sally from Leeds Vineyard Church for serving up and washing up supper, and to Simon from Hyde Park Methodist Church who did the overnight shift…

Asylum Seeker Support Fund

All Hallows’ has a fund to support asylum seekers in need. The fund is well used as unfortunately the need is great, and the fund has become somewhat depleted. Could you consider making a one-off or regular donation to the fund? You can do so by using the main church bank account and then letting Richard Barton  (humanbead@hotmail.com) know that the gift is for the asylum seeker fund. For more information on how the fund is used please speak to Richard or Andrea Hill (groovelands@hotmail.com).

Details of giving are on the Giving to All Hallows’ page of our website

Hardship fund for destitute asylum seekers living in Leeds

Refugees and asylum seekers in Leeds are struggling more and more, as are the services which exist to help them.

It would be great if people could consider making a donation to support this important fund for what are genuinely some of the poorest people living in our city.
