What is like to be homeless in Glasgow? What can the Church do to meet the needs of people who are homeless in this city? How should we respond?

Hosted by Bethany Christian Trust and in partnership with Street Connect, Glasgow City Mission, Neopolis (SSCM) and Serve Scotland, we believe that the only way to end homelessness in our city, is by working together with others. We believe that the church has a huge part in this.

Respond conference addresses the challenges of homelessness that exist within Glasgow. Designed as an immersive experience, Respond brings worship, teaching and practice together to evoke a response to the needs of homelessness within the city.

During the day there is the opportunity to hear from practitioners at three City Centre Hubs who all are meeting homelessness face on each day. There will be time to pray together and seek God’s vision for the future ahead and to understand how we as the Church can support one another and maximize the resources given to us.

All in an effort to work together to end homelessness…in Glasgow.
