Who we are

Fast 58 is a registered charity set up by a group of Christian volunteers with a commitment to street based outreach and ministry to the poor and needy in London.

What we do

Every Friday night, volunteers from Fast 58 cook up to 200 hot meals and prepare bags of fresh fruit and flasks of tea and coffee to be served to those sleeping on the street.

Preparation of the food begins early on Friday afternoon, cooking and boxing up the hot meals, preparing the fruit and hot drinks. Before going out onto the street, volunteers spend time in group prayer.

We then head out onto the street, to Strand and Waterloo. Our team then shares the food and drinks and provides a listening ear and a word of encouragement. Though we are careful not to seek to compel vulnerable people into accepting our message, many people have come to Christ during these outreaches and many seek encouragement and prayer to help in a time of need.

Our outreach is usually concluded by a time of worship on the street, joined by rough sleepers, other churches with a heart for the homeless, and even by passers-by.

What you can do to help

As a volunteer organisation with a very modest budget, we always welcome help from volunteers who share our concern for the homeless. You can help with food preparation, transport, food distribution and ministry on our Friday outreach.

Even if you cannot help by volunteering your time, a donation towards the cost of providing food would help to ensure that we are able to continue to provide nourishing meal to those in real need.
