Lots has been happening at Highway House homeless shelter. Find out why we are much more than a homeless shelter. The latest news on residents and the project is right here.
We now have a great new logo too, so do let us know what you think.

Channel 4 Captures Baptism

On the 8th February 2013, Highway of Holiness baptised 15 members at the Gospel Centre in Hornsey.

The week before the planned baptism, Channel 4 contacted the Church with a view to doing some filming with Highway House homeless shelter. They wanted us to assist them with a short film they were producing. When they heard that we had planned a baptism for the coming Sunday they were keen and excited to film the entire event.
That Sunday, the predominately Romanian group to be baptised, along with Channel 4 went over to Hornsey for the water baptisms. Many of the men who were baptised said that this was something they had always wanted to do, but had not, until now, had the chance to dedicate their life to Christ.
It was a moving and emotional time for all involved, and it was beautifully captured on film by the Channel 4 film crew. Following the event, each person received a certificate of baptism. For the first time ever, we produced certificates in another language, Romanian. These were well received and as we handed out the certificates, great testimonies were given by those who had been baptised.

Two testimonials were particularly moving. Cristinel from Romania, like many others in his country, came to London to find work, leaving his wife and child behind.  His son had been ill from birth and his legs had been affected by the illness.
Two days after the baptism, Cristinel received a call from his wife. Their child was now healed! Miraculously, the problem with the child’s legs had disappeared. During the testimony, the enormity of the transformation was clear to see as Cristinel thanked God for what he had done for his family.
Another awesome testimony was from Florica also baptised, he had been suffering with pain in his legs for a while. On emerging from the water he said he felt the pain leave his body and has been pain free since.
We have received many inspiring testimonies as a result of the baptisms.

Our Romanian Service proves popular – in Romania

Recent months have seen an increase in the number of Romanian people staying at the House. While they have been attending the usual Sunday Service because they wanted to be in the presence of the Lord, it was apparent that they could not understand the service in English.

What did we do? Hold a Romanian service, naturally. We provided Bibles in Romanian and engaged one of our residents Mihai who has a good command of English to translate the service led by Pastor Alex. Another resident of Highway House Viorel Maruntelu, a former Romanian recording artist, leads praise and worship.
The entire congregation are now able to be fully involved with the service and hear the Word of God in their own language.
We are now seeing many more friends of friends who travel great distances to attend the two hour weekly Sunday service that runs between 6.30 – 8.30pm. With 40 people now in attendance, the lively service is so popular many record and share it with their friends and family on Facebook.
The Highway of Holiness – bringing the nations to Christ.

Come On You Spurs

Last month, our local football club Tottenham Hotspurs, kindly put together a bespoke training and employability programme, exclusively for the residents of Highway House.
The Great Grass programme saw 11 men from the house take part in a 3-week programme, where they gained valuable training in Information Technology and Employability skills. The programme also included a tour of the football stadium in White Hart Lane, Tottenham and a visit to the Eden Project in Cornwall. All those who took part enjoyed the programme immensely and had various tales to tell of the activities that they participated in.
Residents who took part were also treated to refreshments and lunch each day, and awarded with a certificate on completion of the programme.

Makeover with Photoshoot

In December LG Gordon Photography and members of the Tabernacle Church hosted a special night of entertainment and pampering for Highway House residents.
The night started with residents choosing a new outfit and they were then treated to a new haircut and shave. A photo shoot captured the transformation of each resident. Nurses were also in attendance giving general health checks to residents.

Shoe Box Project

For the second Christmas in a row, the Shoe Box Project generously donated 50 shoe boxes filled with gifts for the residents of Highway House. Residents were each provided with a beautifully wrapped shoe box filled with a range of useful treats. For many residents this was the only gift they received for Christmas. A warm thanks goes to all who took part in the Shoe Box Project this year.

Moving On

Join us as we congratulate the residents who are moving on with their lives.
We are happy to announce that some of our residents have now enrolled in education courses with a few taking the brave step of taking on a degree. One former resident is studying to become a paramedic.
We are also delighted to announce that in the last quarter of the year, 17 residents have found jobs. The jobs are in a range of sectors including hospitality, catering and construction. Robert, a former resident of Highway House has been able to resume his career as nurse.

Moving Out

We bid a fond farewell to those residents who in the past 12 months have left Highway House to move into their own space that they can call home.
15 former residents have now moved into their own rented accommodation in Tottenham, Finsbury Park and even as far afield as Chester.
