New Beginnings Reading host a number of services and user groups at the Queens Arms on Great Knolly Street.
Current services and groups
The Way Ministry serve a home cooked dinner for single homeless and vulnerable adults every Sunday afternoon. Free clothing is also be available along with signposting and fellowship. A listening ear and support is always served alongside a hearty meal.
Upcoming services and groups
We hope to run a All Night Café, inspired by the All Night Café in Camberley. Guests receive a hot meal and place to sleep for the night. We hope to run this a number of nights a week and will need a number of volunteers to get this going.
After School Café
We will be welcoming homeless families and those in need into our After School Café. A warm welcome will be given to all, parents and children will have a safe place to stay and play after school. A homework corner will be available as well. The Queens Arms has a spacious garden for parents and children to enjoy. Support and sign posting will also be on offer.
The shop will be offing pre-owned household goods, adult and children’s clothing and household items to those in need. Pre-owned school uniforms will also be on offer to families in need. We will be operating on a ‘pay what you can afford’ basis. Pay what you can afford, if you can’t afford it then it’s free!
