Cardiff Christian Night Shelter Opens its doors before Christmas

Believe it or not, even in this day and age, there are people sleeping rough on our streets and in our parks. There are one or two for whom this is a lifestyle choice, but the great majority are people who are down on their luck and who have fallen through the safety net of the benefits system.

What is the night shelter? 

Night Shelter Cardiff is run by a group of churches providing a warm place to eat and sleep for 3 winter months of the year for the homeless. Rhiwbina Baptist Church provides a team of volunteers who run a shelter once a week at Calvary Baptist Church, Cowbridge Road East. The shelter sees around 80 visitors most weeks and the shelter helps to facilitate access to permanent accommodation and other services including healthcare.

How to be Involved

The NightShelter normally starts in the week before Christmas and runs until around the end of March, although this may vary depending on the weather. It runs across 7 different churches in Cardiff. 


If you can cook, make tea and coffee, chat with people to make them feel welcome or want to get involved in any other way - we would love to hear from you; please speak to Helen or Neil Phillips (This email address is being protected from spambots.
