Some of the news contained includes:
Saying goodbye to one of our Street Pastors and wishing her well on her next adventure as she moves to a new posting. We’re keeping Laura in our prayers as she moves onto new pastures.
Welcoming our four current trainees who are progressing through training at a pace and becoming part of the St Helens Street Pastor family. We are so excited to have them with us.
An introduction to one of our first Street Pastors in St Helens in our new feature corner to help you get to know us better.
Stats to help you visualise what we do and how we work in the night-time community.
Some of the stats include:
We have been in St Helens for 7 months or 15 patrols.
We are still out twice per month, 2nd and 4th Fridays although we are hoping to trial a Saturday at end August. As we train and license more Street Pastors we will increase the amount of nights we go out each month.
We’ve only been counting total interactions per night since April and that’s shown that in the 8 patrols since beginning of April, we’ve spoken with 288 people.
In our 15 patrols so far we have had longer conversations or have practically helped 204 people. That could mean giving out flipflops, waters or space blankets. It has also meant waiting with people who needed ambulance assessments to provide reassurance; occasionally helping people find a taxi office or taxi rank and providing a listening ear.
