The West London Mission also provides accommodation for students and young people.

Methodist Chaplaincy House

Methodist Chaplaincy House provides self-catering "accommodation plus" for 26 students in Higher Education. It is on the same site as the Kings Cross Methodist Church, and provides a supportive and welcoming environment with a Chistian ethos. There is a community meal once a month, and social events and dicsussions are organised throughout the year.

Communities at Hinde Street

There are sometimes vacancies to join the two communities at the Hinde Street Methodist Church. Each community consists of young people of both sexes, and the accommodation available consists of single rooms within well-appointed flats at reasonable rents. Community members make a commitment to church life at Hinde Street and to life in community with one another.

Fellowship and Volunteering

HindeYAG is the Young Adults' Group at Hinde Street Methodist Church. It organises a range of events including talks, film screenings, quizzes, concert or theatre trips, all in the context of fellowship with like-minded young Christians. You can find out more information on the blog, contact the group by email or email Miriam

Volunteering with West London Day Centre
West London Mission has some of the most extensive social work of any network of churches in London. This means that there is scope for volunteering particularly with homeless people. Follow the links for further information.

During the winter months Hinde Street and Kings Cross Methodist Churches provide a night shelter for those are street homeless. There are many and varied opportunities for volunteering to enable this provision. Watch this space for more information.
