Thousands of Good Samaritans across the UK and Ireland are supporting the homeless over Christmas.

Homeless people can enjoy the festive period in a B&B in Bradford, tuck into a dinner in Dublin or attend a library in Scotland on Christmas Day.

Inn Churches will pay for about a dozen homeless people to spend Christmas in a bed and breakfast in Bradford.

The charity operates a winter shelter scheme with 19 churches in and around the city, providing homeless people with a bed in a church, a meal and support for a week.

Over the Christmas week, St Matthews Church, at Willesden, London, will pay for those due to stay there to be accommodated in a bed and breakfast for up to three nights.

The Salvation Army will also provide the guests with a Christmas dinner.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible -,, and Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
