Burngreave Ashram at 80-86 Spital Hill began in 2001 as “a Sign of the Incarnation and a Place where Kingdom of God things might happen” on an inner city shopping street. The first floor, 80, provides accommodation for six Asylum Seekers through Assist. The corner shop, 86, is a Cafe/Centre, where local community and health groups meet, and where Burngreave Ashram provides a Wednesday 6pm Free Meal for Homeless and Needy, through membership of FareShare. The basement houses the Multi-Faith Chapel and Library, where seminars, meditations and other activities take place. Burngreave Ashram is an entirely volunteer-run charitable project, part of the Radical Christian Ashram Community, which also sponsors three nearby Community Houses, and the 347 Glossop Road New Roots veggie/vegan/fairtrade shop and centre.
The Christian Core meets for Eucharist on Wednesdays at 6.45pm, fortnightly in each other’s homes over a shared Gathering meal on Mondays from 7 to 9.30pm, and monthly for a Sunday lunch Cafe Church 12.30 to 2.15pm.
