A High Wycombe church has opened its doors to the homeless for the seventh year running as temperatures plunge.

Each Monday evening, the Wycombe Community Seventh-Day Adventist Church host and provide around 12 male and female guests with warm beds, hot drinks and cooked dinner and breakfast in a bid to provide them with a safe place to sleep in the cold weather.

Volunteers from the Wycombe Community Church and from other local churches work in shifts giving their time and care to interact with the homeless guests in the evening.

Joel Williams, the co-ordinator of Wycombe Community Church, said: “This is a great success. It gives me great satisfaction, knowing when the homeless come to us, we can help them keep safe, provide hot meals and a warm bed”.

The Seventh-day Adventist Church supports Wycombe Homeless Connection during the winter months from January until end of March.
