Our Ethos

Manna House is Christian in its foundation and inspiration but it is completely non-sectarian in action with members of all faiths and none and working with all faiths and none. Without ‘preaching’ or ‘tracts’ its ethos is to put into practice the simple gospel message ‘love your neighbour as yourself’. Therefore

  • Manna House is a welcoming community
  • Manna House builds supportive relationships
  • Manna House is a place of acceptance and opportunity
  • Manna House facilitates learning by doing.

All staff and volunteers work in a compassionate, holistic and boundaried way.
