The Victorian government have announced a new lockdown on 5th of August and as a result Sunbury Winter Shelter was closed before 8pm, after we have shared a delicious homemade dinner with our guests. Our guests will be transferred to nearby accommodation where they will be safe and warm. We will be in contact with our loyal and patient volunteers as soon as we know when we will be operating again.

Our Mission

Sunbury Winter Shelter’s mission is to provide refuge for homeless people where they may find meals and a place to sleep and to co-ordinate the participation of the combined Sunbury church families and the community in the provision of refuge and sanctuary.
