Offering a Warm Welcome

Hundreds of Methodist churches are keen to offer somewhere for people to find heat, comfort and companionship.

Over 14.4 million people live in poverty in the UK and over 7 million people experience chronic loneliness.

Through the collective power of local spaces, Warm Welcome served half a million people last winter, hosting nearly 2.5 million individual visits, while being supported by over 17,000 volunteers every week.

Methodist churches have responded to the cost-of-living crisis by opening their doors to ensure that communities are not left out in the cold.  

Along with other community organisations, hundreds of Methodist churches have registered spaces on the Warm Welcome website.

They are keen to offer somewhere for people to find heat in Winter, and comfort and companionship all year round.
