We were delighted to welcome The Bishop of Gloucester; Rachel Treweek to our annual Commissioning Service at Holy Apostles Church on 9th December 2017. She gave an address as part of the service.
We commissioned 10 volunteers, now patrolling in the town centre every Friday and Saturday nights 10pm to 4am. They join nearly 60 Street Pastors for Cheltenham. We also re commissioned all current Street and Prayer Pastors.
Along with supporting family and friends we also welcomed Dame Janet Trotter, Martin Surl, Julian Moss, The Mayor; Klara Sudbury, MP Alex Chalk and one of our patrons Michael Browne. They all gave a short speech of thanks and encouragement for our teams.
Please contact street pastors if you would like to find out more about becoming a street pastor and joining one of our patrols.
