Volunteers serving meals at the Safehaven project to the street community in Brighton are known for their friendly smiles

JESUS FED THE 5,000, but a Brighton church has fed over 1,000 this year. An impressive 1,045 meals were served last term to guests from the street community at the Safehaven project run by St Peter’s Church, Brighton.

Busy volunteers helped dish out the delicious dinners for the diners who enjoyed a short church service each Saturday. Safehaven also runs separate men’s and women’s groups for the street community with activities ranging from table tennis to craft sessions. Support is given too by project workers to mothers and babies. Alpha courses run by the church help the street community deepen their relationship with God.

A spokesman for Safehaven said: “Our aim is to provide safety, community and a place to belong.”
