Woking Street Angels

Woking Street Angels is a project run by Churches across Woking and which Woking People of Faith is delighted to support by encouraging volunteers from other faith groups to participate in the project of caring for people in the town centre at night as the clubs and pubs close.  

Woking’s Street Angels web site informs us that ‘Street Angels or similar programmes have been springing up across the UK over the last 6 years.  Street Angels are adult volunteers (over 18s), usually from local churches, who care and provide practical support for the people, usually on Friday and/or Saturday nights, who use the night clubs and other leisure and entertainment venues in town centres.  Their calming presence on the streets late at night makes a really positive impact on crime and antisocial behaviour in town centres and they make a real difference to many people, very often young people who have had too much to drink.  For more details see separate ‘Street Angels – Mission and Values’ statement on the Woking Street Angels web site.’

Street Angels currently operate in Guildford and Camberley and a few people, from several different Woking Churches, have come together with the vision and enthusiasm to set up Street Angels in Woking. 

To find out more about Street Angels, why not take a look at the DVD, based on a Radio Interview conducted by Justin Brierley on Christmas Day 2009,  and put to pictures.   Just click here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mT44IJQHMcc
