The Minehead Hope Centre Trust

The Minehead Hope Centre Trust (TMHCT) is based at Minehead Baptist Church, near the town centre and in beautiful West Somerset.

For over 12 years TMHCT have operated as The Hope Centre (THC) and supported those in the local community who are homeless, have problems associated with drugs/ alcohol, mental health issues or are lonely or vulnerable in any way. We are there to show the love and compassion of Jesus Christ to all with whom we come into contact. 

Our Aim is to help our clients, whenever they come to us, to live their lives to their full potential through appropriate support and advice, but starting by offering Christian hospitality, friendship and hope.

We run a drop-in centre two days per week, a welcoming and listening environment that includes the provision of a hot meal, access to the internet, showers, laundry and other facilities.

In 2022 THC was awarded the Queens Award for Voluntary Service in recognition of its work.
