Home > Churches

Churches in Central London and within the M25 area that provide help and advice, shelter or other services to those who are homeless.

If you are a church that provides help for the homeless please use the contact page to be included in this directory

Churches are a valuable resource to homeless people and shouldn´t be overlooked. Some churches provide limited facilities for an overnight stay, some may only be open for such services during the winter months. Some churches may have arrangements with local authorities or businesses to provide food and tea or coffee vouchers at local vendors. You don´t have to be religious to be able to stay at at a church. Some churches are part of a larger group or organisation of 2 or more churches.

Some churches may only provide pre booked facilities, some may provide drop in (on the spot) services. Some may only provide homeless services in the winter months October to April or Dec – Late March.

Not all churches provide facilities so it´s best to check this list rather than just popping into your local church and asking if you can stay the night to avoid embarrassment. The reasons for this are a lot of churches these days are only open for services at certain days of the week and are closed at other times to save on costs. Another reason would be they have no toilet facilities which is an important requirement for an overnight stay.

The best churches that provide this service are normally open from early in the morning to late at night. The overnight stay will be basic and I´ve heard they often are without heating, don´t expect any luxuries but you will be safe/secure dry and will get a good nights sleep, better than on the streets at least.

With all the churches listed below it is best to check for availability of spaces and booking may be required in advance. All these services are free but some may require some involvement with the church such as attending a service once a week or ashort prayer session or something similar.

St James’s Church (non Drop in Service)
The winter shelter operates over the coldest winter months and is run by volunteers and members of our church community. St James’s is one of several churches taking part in this project which is coordinated by Westminster Churches Winter Shelter. The homeless men and women who come to the shelter – our guests – are referred by an intermediate agency; it is not a drop-in service.
