Swindon Night Shelter

The Swindon Night Shelter was started as a result of the vision of members of North Swindon Baptist Church, and opened for the first time on Saturday 3rd January 2009. It is run entirely by volunteers from churches throughout Swindon, including 7 volunteers from here at Freshbrook Church.

Swindon Night Shelter aims to break the cycle of homelessness and transform lives by providing accommodation and support in partnership with other organisations to offer opportunities for transformation and fulfilling their God given potential.  

Swindon Night Shelter offers emergency accommodation and a day haven for the homeless and vulnerable. They also host affordable food clubs with dignified grocery shopping similar to the one run here at Freshbrook Church. 

Frehsbrook Church hosts table top sales for Swindon Night Shelter in an effort to fundraise for the incredible work they do. This is where donated household and food items are sold at about 75% off the recommended retail price with 100% of the sales going to the charity’s work.  

In a world of homelessness, addiction, fear, rejection and marginalisation, Swindon Night Shelter aims to come alongside the needy to show that somebody does care. Everyone needs to be accepted and treated with dignity.   

It aims to minister to the spiritual needs as well as the emotional and physical needs of the homeless by being a visible testimony of Jesus Christ working closely with Churches and Christians in and around Swindon to meet the needs of the homeless in our area.
