Currently we have one service aspect of our ministry but we are committed to seeking out the poor whoever and wherever they may be so we will be looking to create new initiatives in the future.
Every Wednesday 6.30-8.00pm in the Narthex of St Wilfrid’s Church, Preston City Centre
A weekly drop-in where we provide clothes, shoes, sleeping bags, toiletries etc to anyone in need. We also spend time listening and chatting with those who attend in order to share the Father’s love with them. If you have any spare toiletries, sleeping bags or clothes, particularly men’s t-shirts, jeans, tracksuit bottoms and trainers then please leave them in the box in the narthex of St Wilfrid’s or drop them off at our office.
- Metanoia Project Operations and the Coronavirus. (3/19/2020) - Dear Young People, Parents, Friends and Supporters, Because of recent guidance from both the Government and the Bishops’ Conference, and in consultation with the schools and Parishes with which we work, we have made the difficult decision to suspend all of our groups and events except our work with the Homeless. Therefore, there will be no youth groups at St Clare’s or St Mary’s Lea Town, no talks for adults at St Wilfrid’s, no meetings for our Young Leaders or for the Students and Young Adults, no sessions for Young Families, no Adoration with Praise and Worship etc. until further notice. During this time, when many of our usual ways of expressing our Faith have been removed, and we can no longer gather together, it is all the more important that we find ways to invest in our relationships with God and each other. Although our regular groups and events will not be able to continue for the foreseeable future, the Metanoia Project Team will continue to be here to support you in any way we can and we will be finding different avenues to build and maintain community in ways that do not require physical contact. We will also continue to offer spiritual input, scripture reflection and prayer resources through various means so look out for ways to stay involved and nourish your Faith! You can let us know what sort of thing you would / would not like to hear about by filling in our ‘contact preferences’ form here: http://metanoiaproject.co.uk/contact-preferences/ If you are fit and well and do not support any vulnerable people in your work or household, why not consider helping us serve the homeless at our Wednesday Drop-in? Our usual team of volunteers is somewhat depleted due to the need to self-isolate so any help will be gratefully received. We will miss meeting with you all but hope that we will be able to see you all again in the not-too-distant future. In the meantime, look after yourselves, keep praying and keep in touch! God bless Ruth and Joe
- Rucksack Delivery (2/25/2018) - Having spent a frantic few weeks fundraising, the staff and pupils at Corpus Christi High School presented us with 20 Rucksacks all full of underwear, socks, sleeping bags, chocolate, t-shirts, shower gel and a New Testament. They also had a few items spare! We were blown away by their efforts and generosity especially in such a short space of time. The people who attend our Wednesday Drop-In were delighted to receive such a useful gift for Christmas and were so touched by the love and care that was demonstrated to them. If you would like to be involved in a similar project in the future then please get in touch.
- Advent Rucksack Appeal Assemblies (12/13/2017) - Corpus Christi High School are generously helping us to provide a rucksack full of useful things and a message of love to each person who uses our Wednesday Drop-In over the Christmas period. We went into School on Tuesday 28th and Thursday 30th to address two assemblies about the appeal. We took some time to […]
