Every night, an estimated number of 4,751 people are sleeping rough across England, a rise of 169% since 2010. In response to the great need of homeless people, almost 1,000 groups have taken the ‘Advent Sleepout Challenge’ over the last three years. www.sleepoutchallenge.org.uk/about

This year, a group of students of the College of the Resurrection have accepted this challenge and will spend one night outside the comfort of their College rooms in order to raise awareness and support this good cause. Following Christ’s call to clothe the naked and feed the hungry, we hope to raise a sum of £1,000 for the work of the Church Urban Fund’s Together Network. www.cuf.org.uk/together-network

Our Sleepover will take place on Wednesday, 5 December, and will be hosted by St Mary’s Church (Mirfield Team Parish). The event will involve the opportunity to learn more about the needs of homeless people in our society and to pray together for God’s world.
