Re your article about man with cross. Please do not tar all churches with the same brush. Our church St Cecilias/St Bernards, on Southey Hill would never turn a genuine needy person away.
We don’t let people sleep in church as we have not got accommodation but we have paid bed and breakfast for them and also helped people to pay a bill or get some food.
We also have jumble sales selling cheap clothes etc and coffee mornings for charity.
Everybody is always welcome come and see for yourselves.
