We are a roaming night shelter which is located at
various churches in the Swindon area. Please check back here regularly

We opened our
doors on Saturday 3rd January 2009 at St Mary's church, Rodbourne
Is it not to share your bread with
And that you bring to your house the poor who are cast out;
When you see the naked that you cover him,
And not hide yourself from your own flesh?
Then your light shall break forth like the morning,
Your healing shall spring forth speedily,
And your righteousness shall go before you;
The glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.
Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer;
You shall cry, and he will say, Here I am.
If you take away the yoke from your midst,
The pointing of the finger, and speaking wickedness,
If you extend your soul to the hungry
And satisfy the afflicted soul,
Then your light shall dawn in the darkness,
And your darkness shall be as the noonday.
The Lord will guide you continually,
And satisfy your soul in the drought,
And strengthen your bones;
You shall be like a watered garden,
And like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.
Those from among you
Shall build the old waste places;
You shall raise up the foundations of many generations;
And you shall be called the repairer of the breach,
The Restorer of Streets to Dwell In.
Isaiah 58 v6-12
Our vision is to be able to offer
a safe, warm and secure place to spend the night for anyone over the age of
18 who has nowhere else to sleep.
Everyone needs to be accepted and treated with dignity. In a
world of homelessness, addiction, fear, rejection and marginalization. The
Swindon Night Shelter aims to come alongside the needy to show that somebody
We aim to minister to the spiritual needs as well as the
emotional and physical needs of the homeless by being a visible testimony of
Jesus Christ working closely with Churches and Christians in and
around Swindon to meet the needs of the homeless in our area.
