Summer Socials – Cambridge
Each week we will be highlighting an event that’s been hosted in one of our cities over the Summer. We love doing life with our tenants and supporters, so here’s a little insight into what that looks like.
To celebrate everything Hope Into Action has been doing in Cambridge, the team hosted a celebration service at Barnwell Baptist Church. It also happened to be the evening of the World Cup final! Unfortunately, England were not there but even with the final on we opened the doors and had a brilliant turn out.
Over the past three years HIA Cambridge has grown from a single house, to five houses supporting over 30 tenants with more houses on the horizon. This would have not been possible without all our partner churches and the hard-work so many people have put in. So, the evening was to say a big thankyou to all our supporters and give a bit of an insight to the work we do serving the homeless in this city.
Our key note speaker was Gavin, the Chairman of Trustees at HiA and he shared the importance of mission in our local communities. There was al
so chance to hear from one of our current tenants, her journey and how Hope into Action have been there to support her.
The evening was also a chance for people to hear about what Hope Into Action do, how to get involved and support our work.
Thank you to all those who came to our celebration service and please follow our facebook page for regular updates on all that is happening at Hope Into Action Cambridge.
