The Sparrow’s Nest is a Christian ministry center for those in need. Centrally located on a busy downtown Athens street, our two story facility includes meeting and dining rooms, laundry and shower facilities, and space to organize and distribute clothing and food. A small staff and a large team of volunteers minister to those in need through weekday ministries rather than through traditional Sunday meeting and worship activities.
The Sparrow’s Nest is a place where those in need can find help in a Christ-centered environment - a hot meal or a bag of groceries shared in love; showers and laundry facilities for the homeless; donated clothing for the needy, and vibrant ministries to at-risk children and youth. Christians and churches from across the community are able to get involved in a variety of ways. Individuals can volunteer on an occasional or regular basis. Church groups can prepare and serve a meal and interact with those who come in a safe environment. The Sparrow’s Nest offers opportunities to serve, to donate, and to share love and hope in both word and deed.
