Friends of St. Augustine's

The Centre...

St. Augustine's Centre Halifax exists to help vulnerable people in our local community especially those arriving here from abroad. We are seeking to build on the success of the Centre through a new initiative called Friends of St Augustine's.

This is a developing network of those, who in different ways, whether great or small, are committted to support the work of the Centre.

You can sign up as a Friend by helping through the following ways:

Volunteering...

You can help the work by volunteering to come along to the Centre at times convenient to you, bringing any skills and experience you have, being on the front line of helping those who come, or working behind the scenes in practical ways. Volunteers are the backbone of the Centre.

Sponsoring...

You can help the work of the Centre by giving regularly to support the work (sponsoring). In the past we have received financial support from various funding streams and grants. While we will always be grateful for such provision, we would like to create a network of people who will commit to giving a little regularly to the work . This would help us to be more reliant on the goodwill of local people to support the project and less vulnerable to the uncertainty of obtaining other grants.

Befriending...

You can help the work of the Centre by befriending some of those who come. Volunteers already make friends with regular users of the Centre, but we would like to develop a network of 'befrienders' who might get to know individuals and families who use the Centre, perhaps having them in your home for meals.

Praying....

You can help the work significanttly, simply by praying faithfully for the Centre, for those who work here and all those who come here for help. There are, of course, those who already pray. But we want to encourage others to 'take us on' in prayer.


The 100 Challenge...

We have set ourselves the specific challenge of finding 100 local people, groups or organisations each year who will become sponsors of the work of the Centre.
