The church’s work with the homeless still carries on.

Shelter was launched in 1966 evolving out of the work on behalf of homeless people then being carried on at St Martin-in-the-Fields. The church’s work with the homeless still carries on to this day through their ‘Connection’ centre which helps homeless people by providing specialist services – including a day and night centre, outreach for rough sleepers, skills training and career advice, activity programmes and specialist support for complex needs – to over 200 people in central London every day.
