Raise money with your faith group

Faith groups have long provided invaluable support for Shelter Scotland's work. We hope you will join them, helping families currently facing homelessness.

Current activity: hold a Lent or Easter collection for Shelter Scotland

Our New Beginnings Appeal offers two key ways in which you and your congregation can help Shelter Scotland during Lent and Easter. Find out more through these two handy downloads.

Prayer cards
An opportunity for Christians across Britain to sacrifice a little during Lent to raise money and help families facing homelessness and bad housing.

Easter Service booklet
This helpful booklet contains suggested hymns prayers, readings and some 'new beginning' stories to show how generous acts can bring new hope to those in need in our community.

Alternative resources

Shelter Scotland also offers more general materials for services, as well as Christmas focussed packs. Just download the materials you need from the list below.

How else can your congregation make a difference?

There's lots of other great ways your congregation can get involved, from holding a carol service through to a coffee morning or cake sale. Take a look at our fundraising guide for lots of exciting tips and ideas.
