A prayer written amongst the conflict in Ukraine, as part of Refugee Week 2022, from All We Can:

God of all grace,
Amidst all that we don’t understand,
Surrounded by images and stories of violence and conflict,
We stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Ukraine,
and all who live in fear this day.
Our prayers of lament are also prayers of empathy,
And prayers for a peaceful resolution,
Prayers for a world where there is no more war,
No more suffering, no more needless death.
This day, and every day, grant us your peace.

John Wesley's Chapel, House and Museum website

The Chapel and Museum is  open for visits Tuesday to Saturday from 11.00-15.30.   The Georgian Town House is not always open for unbooked visits and it is always best to check before coming any distance, as a shortage of stewards can occasionally force unexpected closure of the site.

Don’t miss our temporary display ‘Wesley the Correspondent’ in the Museum.

Would you like to volunteer as a Heritage Guide?  Training Given.

From the Whitechapel Mission:
Our doors will be open every day during 2022
We have been helping Londoners to help people who are rough sleeping since 1876, meeting the specific needs of each man and woman who walks through our doors.

Based in the Methodist circuit, we are a volunteer led work with very few staff, but this does not mean we are a small organisation.

First, we help people by meeting immediate needs: food, shelter, clothing, and medical care. In our recovery programmes, we address deeper needs for life-skills and job-skills training, and addiction recovery. We measure our progress against four criteria which indicate to us that a life has been transformed from homelessness to hope: connection to family, commitment to sobriety, a job and a place to live, and a plan for the future.
The Whitechapel Mission is called to serve the men and women caught in the cycles of poverty, hopelessness and dependencies of many kinds, and to see their lives transformed to hope, joy and lasting productivity. We promote the concept of being part of the Mission and taking ownership of the Mission. Any and all who come are welcome.
