Overnight shelter for refugees
We are currently hosting refugees from Ukraine in our church. So far our guests have mostly been Africans who had been students in Ukraine when the war started. We are open four nights a week, from Tuesday afternoon to Saturday morning, between 5pm and 9am for up to 20 overnight guests. If you'd like to make a donation to support our cause this is highly appreciated. If you'd like to volunteer, please fill out our volunteer form and we will send you all the information. If you would like to see more about our shelter, please find us on instagram at stcolumbas_scottish_church.DONATE
Please contact the minister at the earliest planning stage to arrange one of these services. Upon request, services can be conducted bi-lingually in English and Hungarian.
