The Junction, a community advice and drop-in centre, is part of The King’s Cross Church located in a converted Public House between 5 – 10 minutes’ walk from the main church premises. It provides a safe environment for people from the wider community to meet together and to access various forms of help and advice as well as gain friendship and support. Various activities such as Grow, Cook and Eat, an English conversation group for speakers of other languages and a Knit and Natter group are undertaken together, and we also offer computer lessons on a one-to-one basis. In addition, we host regular drop-ins from the local Stronger Community Officers and from Migrant Action. The Junction is open from 10am to 4.15pm on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, with a half hour break for lunch , and is staffed by a team of able and willing volunteers from the church as well as a full-time manager. We offer Christian love and support, and are happy to pray with, and for, people.
There are a number of one-bedroomed flats attached to the property, which provide accommodation to people from the local area.
Everyone is welcome at The Junction, whether they are simply calling for advice or a hot drink, or whether they visit on a more regular basis.
