Wigan Street Pastors

on Sun Mar 10 2019, 10:55
Transforming Wigan - @TransformWigan (9th Mar 2019):

Tonight our Street Pastors stopped in for a chat and a brew at ‪@Gallimores‬, they're very supportive and have been since we started.



Picking up bottles and glasses and sweeping up broken glass is also part of Street Pastor life, helping keep people safe.



Street Pastors stopped by the station tonight and watched the last train go,and had a chat with some of the staff there.

Street Pastors give out water and flip flops to those who need them.



Wigan Street Pastors do a great job, and they need people to join them.
Being a Street Pastor is a lot of fun and is very rewarding.
This Lent please seriously consider whether you could commit to one night a month.

Street pastors are trained volunteers from local churches who care about our community. They are usually on patrol from 10 pm to 4 am on a Friday or Saturday night to care for, listen to, and help people who are out on the streets. They are led by the local coordinator and also have support from local churches and community groups in partnership with the police, local council and other statutory agencies.

If you are interested in finding out more about their work, or in becoming a Street Pastor, please click here.

They have "Street Pasties" in Leigh.  Because they don't like spaghetti, apparently!   Rolling Eyes
