Andover Street Pastors, along with 14 other volunteer groups, were invited to a service of thanksgiving on Sunday 30th November at St Mary’s Church Andover. The service was organised by Borough Councillor Iris Andersen and hosted by Revd Canon John Harkin to celebrate the work of volunteer groups in Andover.
Each group showed a short video and talk to show the work they do, and were presented with a certificate of thanks by Iris.
The event was followed by afternoon tea and an opportunity for the various groups to talk and share information with each other.
As street pastors we like to work closely with the local community and often have to signpost people to other support groups. Following this service we were pleased to be able to some more groups to our list.
