Annual Report 2021

Beauty from Ashes

One of the formative passages in the Bible for Bethany Christian Trust comes from Isaiah 61:3 “…to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.”  

This year’s annual report, Beauty from Ashes, features inspiring stories from across the country reflecting the beauty that can arise in a person’s life, even from the ashes.  The personal expression in each first person account conveys the beauty of restoration. 

We have continued to see amazing blessing and growth this year despite the external circumstances and have introduced a section on growth and development to our annual report in order to keep you up to date.  

We are deeply grateful for your incredible support and we continue to be overwhelmed by your generosity for this life saving work.  You have enabled us to sustain all our services and respond proactively and rapidly to support and accommodate people in a wide range of contexts throughout the pandemic. 

Would you please consider donating today and supporting Bethany Christian Trust again this year? Together we can prevent homelessness, intervene in crisis and sustain people in their own homes.

Thank you sincerely for your partnership in creating beauty from ashes. 

Alasdair Bennett
Chief Executive
