Churches Winter Shelter 2017-18

It might only be October but we are now planning for the Winter Shelter 2018. The shelter will open on Tuesday 2nd January 2018 and run until the morning of 5th March 2018. During that time we will need lots of help! Help with manning the shelter, cooking and washing duvets, for example.

If you would like to get involved, please contact the Project Manager on 07513 377951 or email office.twcws@gmail.com. Thank you.

Our Commissioning Service for the 2018 Winter Shelter will be held on Saturday 25 November 2017 at 6pm at the Salvation Army in Bayhall Road. Everyone is welcome. Please do come along to thank God for the provision of the Winter Shelter and to commission all who will be involved in whatever capacity. See you there!

Training for New Volunteers

There are two training sessions we ask all new volunteers to undertake. One is in-house training and one is delivered by Kent Police around the subject of handling difficult or challenging behaviour.

The first two in-house training sessions for new volunteers will be:
  • Saturday 14th October from 1pm-4pm at St Augustine's Church, Crescent Road, Tunbridge Wells, TN1 2LY. There is parking available behind the church and also at Crescent Road car park which is opposite.
  • Wednesday 8th November from 7pm-10pm at the Salvation Army, Bayhall Road, Tunbridge Wells, TN2 4UT. Parking is available on site. This is the same training repeated twice - you only have to attend ONE of these sessions.

    The Kent Police training sessions will be on:
  • Saturday 4th November, 1pm-3pm at St Philip's Church, Birkin Road, Tunbridge Wells TN2 3TE, or
  • Wednesday 22nd November, from 7-9pm at Christ Church in the High Street. Again, you only need to attend ONE of these sessions. Parking is available.
