Oxford Winter Night Shelter (OWNS)

St Matthew's will be participating in the Oxford Winter Night Shelter again from January to March 2020.  We will follow the same pattern as last winter, offering space for 10 people to sleep in the Parish Centre on Sunday nights as an alternative to sleeping rough.  This is part of a wider organisation through OWNS so that 2 Churches in the City offer beds each day of the week, providing shelter for up to 20 people each day over the 3 months.  If you would like to volunteer then you will need to go on a 2 hour training course, even if you volunteered last year.  The courses will run on 23 Oct, 12 Nov and 16 Nov.
