Homelessness Sunday

Service Date: 
28 January, 2018

The service was planned by St. Andrew's Worship Group and led by the Revd. Robert Beard. The guest speakers were Karen Awdhali and Coral Sanderson from NOMAD.

Hymns: 

Rejoice and Sing 192  Thou didst leave thy throne and thy kingly crown

Rejoice and Sing 500 Jesus united by thy grace

Rejoice and Sing 703 How lovely is thy dwelling place (metrical setting of psalm 84)

Common Ground 4 Let us build a house where love can dwell

Rejoice and Sing 520  For ourselves no longer living

Sermon: 

Instead of a sermon we heard a presentation on the work of NOMAD, a charity working with homeless people and supporting people in accommodation to achieve their goals and turn their lives around. Some of NOMAD'S clients have multiple problems and challenges to face and sadly, some do not want to come off the streets.

Readings.

The Old Testament reading was a collage of texts relating to hospitality and helping those in need.
