A SHOREHAM church is holding a short evening of prayer to show support for homeless people.

The Rev Ann Waizeneker will lead the service at St Nicolas’ Church, St Nicolas Lane, on Wednesday, March 4, at 7.30pm.

In the congregation will be clients, staff and volunteers from Worthing Churches Homeless Projects.

Coffee, cake and home-made jams and chutneys will be available after the short service, with all proceeds going to the charity.

People interested in finding out more about the charity’s work will have a chance to talk to representatives.

Church Treasurer John Simpson said people, young and old, were sleeping rough and they came from all walks of life.

“The short evening of prayer is a simple but very important thing people can do to help.

“Worthing Churches Homeless Projects’ work is vital in our area and they are a lifeline for many in need.

“They believe that everyone has the right to a home, regardless of the difficulties and issues they may face in their lives. They believe in showing those who need our help that the wider community is there to support them and to offer hope for a better future.”

The charity provides temporary accommodation in Worthing, with up to 58 people staying and a further 20 to 30 people using services at the day centre on a daily basis.
