Building a diverse church
serving the communities of London

Jericho Road Project

The Jericho Road Project (JRP) exists to alleviate poverty in the borough of Lewisham. Started in 2001 it aims to support those who live on the streets, helping them to become functioning members of society who make their own contributions to their community. This ministry is rooted in the declarations of Isaiah 61 and God's love for each person.

We work with people as they are - homeless, evicted, addicted, lacking hope - and help them make good choices that enables them to progress in life. We help people with their benefits, housing and addiction advice as well as giving support to attend appointments. We also aim to have fun along the way, and every year organise events including going on a five-day break.

Low Support Housing

We currently provide accommodation and low-level support for thirty-one people within seven different properties. Our aim is to help people move into their own accommodation within two years. More about our supported housing

The Feast

This is a weekly meeting offering free hot food, clothing, advice and friendship to rough sleepers, people who are homeless, and those who have accommodation but are struggling. Up to 140 people attend. Rough sleepers are referred to relevant agencies during the evening. More about The Feast

The CAP Money Course

We run regular courses that teach people budgeting skills and a simple, cash-based system to get more in control of their finances, including bespoke courses for JRP clients.

Advice Work

We help people find accommodation especially with regards to rehabilitation from drug and alcohol addiction.
