Helping Christians Respond To Social Needs
Bristol Homeless Forum
Since its first meeting in September 2001, the BHF has operated as an informal network and a 'Community of Practice'. Towards the end of 2004, we decided to establish a membership system and to plan a 'public launch' in the Spring of 2005 where we could publicise the work of the forum and its members, and celebrate what has been achieved so far as well as attracting support for our work.
The launch event took place in the elim@bristol auditorium on Jamaica Street from 6 - 8 pm on the evening of Friday 15 April 2005. (Map)
We plan to make details of some of the talks available shortly.
The basic plan for the evening was:
Val Jeal gave the keynote address, and Olly Alcock spoke on behalf of the Council.
The three 'membership pack' documents here are slightly updated from the versions sent out to the BHF mailing list early in February 2005.
