About the Bristol Churches Winter Night Shelter

Bristol Churches Winter Night Shelter (BCWNS) is a partnership of churches providing shelter to an agreed number of guests per night. Our guests are people who would orherwise be sleeping rough and are referred to us by the St Mungo’s charity.

During January, February and March, several churches venues each offers shelter one night per week within two 6-week phases. Whilst we are organised through a partnership of churches our volunteers don’t have to be church goers and so we welcome volunteers whether they are drawn from church communities or the wider local community.
