St John’s has within its parish both a prestigious secondary school and a hostel providing temporary accommodation for homeless young people.
Harris City Academy Crystal Palace
Along with other community groups, St John’s is in the early stages of developing a relationship with Harris City Academy Crystal Palace, which is just round the corner from the church in the parish. Watch this space for more developments!
Fitze Millennium Centre
Very close to St John’s is the Fitze Millennium Centre, a facility run by Evolve Housing which provides supported housing for 80 single homeless young people (16 or over) who have a variety of support needs.
It has proved difficult to establish and maintain a meaningful relationship with the young people at the Fitze, but we remain committed to these parishioners. To learn more, or to contribute ideas, contact Berni Excell (berniexcell67
