Coronavirus Update

We have never felt so heartbroken and sad by the news that we have to stop our street outreach after our van never missing a night in over 25 years in all. We can’t even let our dear friends, whom we truly love, know we won’t be there. We understand why but it hurts so much.

We have put posters in town where our van is normally located and will be reaching out to as many of our friends from the streets as possible by phone during this period.

20 year celebration

On Friday 31st January 2020 we held a celebration night as this year we celebrate 20 years of CCMM. It was a tear jerker of a night, as many of our friends from the van shared testimony of how they have been helped over the years. It was a night were we sang worship to Almighty God as we thanked Him for His faithfulness over our many years of ministry. We had a great deal of people attend and most of them have played some part over the years. It has been an immense honour to have served the street people of Manchester for all these years and by the grace of God we will continue for many years to come. While there are people in need of hearing the good news of Jesus, we will continue to be out there supporting them, loving them and letting them know how amazing they are. Thank you for celebrating with us.

He has written a poem too:

Some people have everything, whilst others have nothing at all, where was the safety net, when you started to fall?

Some of the Manchester bees, cannot find a hive, ending homelessness, is for what we should strive.

The city is buzzing, it comes alive at night, for those living on the streets, let’s save them from their plight.

Out for the evening, we hope you have fun, just because they’re homeless, there’s no need to shun.

All or nothing, extremes of lifes scale, just be the best you can, you’ve got to prevail.

Life can be sweet, and it tastes like honey, but it can be tough, when you have no money.

Sometimes your buzzing, and life feels good, others are scratching for a living, everyone deserves a livelihood.

You can run from problems, but they’ll catch you in the end, we all need support, and on people you can depend.

Look for the good, and listen to people’s plight, it’s be a cold and lonely existence, in the middle of the night.
