DENS began as a temporary night shelter rotating between churches in our town, during the winter months.
As a church, we are passionate about loving everyone in our community in what we say and also in how we serve practically. We encourage and support the work of DENS as they tackle homelessness and poverty with love and action in Hemel Hempstead.
