Christ Church Southgate is one of the hosts of the Enfield Churches Winter Night Shelter, managed by the charity All People All Places. The shelter offers a hot meal and a bed for the night to up to 12 homeless people with low support needs who are referred by APAP. Seven churches in Enfield take part in the scheme between January and March. We take part in partnership with our daughter church, St Andrew’s Southgate.
We are sorry but we are unable to accept referrals from any other charity or approaches directly from rough sleepers.
