On Friday night of the 4th Feburary 2011 the Emmaus Community was involved with a sleep over organised by supporting Anglican church St. Stephen’s, Soundwell in Bristol. Around 40 people braved the wet cold weather sleeping rough outside in the churchyard to show solidarity with homeless people and gain some understanding of what it is like to be homeless.
Amongst those who slept out were Companions, Callan and Simon, both have had to sleep rough before coming to Emmaus. Callan said ” Emmaus has changed my life around” .
Callan and Simon are featured on the video of the evening.
