“What I’m interested in seeing you do is: sharing your food with the hungry, inviting the homeless poor into your homes, putting clothes on the shivering ill-clad, being available to your own families. Do this and the lights will turn on, and your lives will turn around at once.” Isaiah 58:7-8a (The Message)
This project reaches out to street people offering food, hot drinks, warm clothing and friendship. It is aimed at filling the gaps in support offered by other organisations in the city throughout the week.
Derby City Mission is partnered by several churches and individuals who keep the Mission supplied with clothing and blankets.
We work hard at getting street people, who want to change, into homes of their own and aim to link them into a church which will support and encourage them. In partnership with other organisations, we have seen some real answers to prayer and change in people’s lives, some of whom have come to faith in Christ and now attend local churches. The life changes have been miraculous to watch!
