God thinks you’re fabulous!

With hot drinks, music and Christmas gifts, the Metropolitan Community Church (MCC) Brighton shared its Christmas message with the homeless of Brighton & Hove on Christmas Eve at the Clock Tower.

For over three hours approximately 40 homeless people joined in the fun. MCC gave out survival bags, clothing and other useful items. It was a time to chat, make friends and have fun during Christmas.

Andrew Ramage, Pastor of MCC Brighton, said: “It was amazing how quickly it became a focal point for the Christmas spirit. The manager of Leon’s café provided take away cups and kept flasks topped up with boiling water, a manager from Boots dropped off sandwiches, a young couple donated some coats and two young boys, 6-8 years old, gave out gift bags they had made. Along with the huge number of people who stopped to talk, sing and wish everyone Merry Christmas this was a truly community Christmas event.” 

MCC Brighton thanks all those who stopped to chat and donate items.
