NIGHT LIGHT WINTER SHELTER - A big thank you to everyone who donated time, money or items to the Night Light Winter Shelter (NLWS) this winter, 2018/2019. The guests have now left the shelter which has been cleared, and the venue is in the process of being sold. However, the NLWS will continue: churches in Basingstoke will provide welcome and accommodation on a rotation next winter. Photos of this year's shelter will be going on the St John's website and up on the Missions Board in the Narthex so please do take a look at what can be achieved by many working together in God's name. Thank you.
