What others say

“It’s Not About the Furniture drew me in at once to the world of St.  Paul’s Centre, the charity operation in Crewe where Wykes and his merry band of colleagues tackle some of society’s most entrenched problems— poverty, hunger, and homelessness – with faith and (second-hand) furniture. Wykes writes with intimacy and a large dash of humour about the challenges and triumphs St. Paul’s has faced over the years, weaving together a story that is by turns amusing and inspiring. Above all, his book is a testament to the mysterious workings of faith, to how God aids those in greatest need, restoring hope and dignity to lives that once seemed lost. I was moved tremendously by this story, and heartily recommend it to anyone interested in the ins and outs of Christian charity work in the twenty-first century”

Macy Halford, Author of Utmost a memoir

‘Inasmuch as you did this unto the least of these my brethren, you did it to me’ (St. Matthew, chapter 25 verse 40).
This beautiful book demonstrates the meaning of this verse. One way or another, St. Paul’s has been at the service of the people of Crewe for nearly 150 years. Long may it flourish.

Rt Rev Dr Peter Forster, Bishop of Chester
