What is Pilgrim Hearts?

Pilgrim Hearts is an inter-denominational Christian charity which utilises creative arts to open up the hearts of all. Our work has reached many who previously had not been awakened to the fact that Christianity relates to each of us, how we face the challenges of our every day living, and how we associate with each other. Pilgrim Hearts Trust was started in 2000 as a registered charity.

Mission statement

Pilgrim Hearts is there to assist those on the Edge and those who, for whatever reason, are not able to benefit from all of life's opportunities.

We are a Christian organisation devoted to helping marginalised people, and those with disabilities, from all walks of life and from all backgrounds, races, and religions to reach their full potential and to explore their gifting and worth through the use of the creative arts.

We run a Drop-in Centre in Bracknell which is providing assistance and succour to many in the area. We also set up a Night Shelter in Bracknell two years agoThis will open again on 2 December.  Complete packs of how to set up and run a night shelter are available free of charge to those who wish to start such a project.
