June 2016 Meeting

‘St Helens Street Pastors’

Welcoming Rev Dr Howard Leatherbarrow

Tuesday 21st June 2016

 

A last minute change of speaker welcomed St Ann’s own Rev Dr Howard Leatherbarrow who came to tell us about ‘Street Pastors – St Helens’.  Street Pastors was formed in 2003 with just 18 volunteers, it now has over 11,000 volunteers in 200 towns/cities across the UK, with St Helens about to start up.  An initiative of the Ascension Trust, Howard went on to explain how the operation works – Street Pastors are always in pairs and patrol the streets between the hours of 10pm-4am, offering compassion and support where needed.  If you would like to know more or you would like to volunteer, please visit their Facebook page ‘St Helens Street Pastors’ or email sainthelens@streetpastors.org.uk

Thank you Howard for coming along at such short notice, and ‘Good Luck’ with Street Pastors.
