Mission Work

Members of Hemel Hempstead Methodist Church support Methodist Home Missions and keep collection boxes in their homes. Funds from these boxes are collected together and sent off once a year in August.

We also raise money for DENS (Dacorum Emergency Night Shelter) which provides a Night Shelter in Hemel Hempstead for homeless people and a Day Centre at Bury Lodge, Queensway, Hemel Hempstead where homeless people can go for food and hot drinks shelter and support during the day.

We support Nascent House in Apsley which helps those who are having problems with drink and drugs, and we raise cash and supply boxes of food when the clients move into new accommodation.
