Often they are sleeping rough and may have a range of difficulties including addiction, mental ill health, relationship problems or a differing lifestyle, which contribute to their homelessness and social exclusion. St Petroc’s exists to provide a diverse range of services for these particular clients.

We collect dried and tinned food for the Bodmin centre, which supports two houses in the town.  Please can you consider putting something extra into your weekly shopping basket for those less able to provide for themselves.  The collection bags are at the back of the church.
