Christ Church Night Shelter for Homeless People

Serving the city’s homeless people since 1992

Christ Church Winter Night Shelter is currently suspended until further notice. If you are homeless and in need of support, please contact Lancaster and District Homeless Action Service (LDHAS) on Edward Street, Monday-Friday 9am-1pm 01524 842008, or Lancaster City Council’s Housing Department 01524 582257, or, out of office hours: 01524 582000.

For the last 29 years, Christ Church has run a Night Shelter for homeless people each winter, accommodating up to 25 people per night. The operation of the shelter depends on the kindness and generosity of volunteers who give their time to ensure that homeless people have access to warmth and shelter throughout the coldest months of the year. If you would like more details about the Shelter, or you wish to support us in whatever way, please contact the Night Shelter Coordinators on 07547 717060, or email
