Street Connect – Outreach Cafe
A Saturday night cafe for reaching out to people in Glasgow city centre in line with our mission statement: “Bringing the healing love of God to a hurting world”.
As a church we want to be reaching out to those in the community God has placed us in. We have an outreach cafe which is open from 8:30pm – 11pm every Saturday night. Some of our team remain in the cafe while others go out onto the streets and share the love of Christ. We have all different types of people back to the cafe where we offer something to eat, someone to talk to and a safe place for them to feel at home.
We have seen much success from this work so far, which began in May 2013. We now also offer several other services during the week and you can find more information about this by visiting our website at www.streetconnect.co.uk
“When I came to Glasgow I was in a bad place, and ended up in homeless accomodation. I went onto the Teen Challenge bus outside the Belgrove Hotel where they told me about the Saturday night outreach cafe at The Christian Centre, which I first attended 7 months ago.
The support I have received there has been phenomenal and I love the relaxed atmosphere. I am now in the process of moving into my own 1 bedroom flat, and am so thankful to all involved at Street Connect for their ongoing support.”
