By sleeping outside in unison on Saturday December 7th, we will create the world’s largest display of solidarity in support for those experiencing homelessness and displacement. 

As well as raising significant funds, we want to send a message to the world’s political leaders to find solutions for homelessness and the global refugee crisis on a local level.

On December 7th this year Minster David Bruton (SNU President) and Alv Hirst (SNU Communications Director) and many others, will be taking part in 'The World’s Big Sleep Out'. The purpose of this is to raise awareness of the homelessness crisis in the UK, and around the world where 1.1 billion people live in inadequate housing and 100 million have no housing at all. It involves sleeping outdoors for one night, somewhere safe and legal. He said, "Having worked with homeless people, I have been very inspired by the increasing number of Spiritualist churches and centres who have raised funds, donated goods and volunteered to support homeless individuals and charities." 

See our Big Sleep Out donation page here please help us reach our target, no matter how small it will go towards making a change.
