Wrexham Street Pastors are inviting church members (over 18) of all denominations to join them as they continue their important work on the streets of Wrexham town centre.
Established here since 2006 they engage with people who may need assistance during their evening out and regularly provide emotional and practical help.
Every Saturday and two Fridays a month they take to the streets between 10 pm until the early hours of the following day and can be seen handing out flipflops and water and lending an appreciated ear to anyone who is upset or frustrated.
“No two nights are ever the same”
Gareth Jones from Street Pastors said, “No two nights are ever the same and we’re always happy to help where we can to provide assistance and support.
“We’re getting low in numbers right now, mainly due to the effects of the Pandemic and we’re encouraging new members to get in touch and join us in the rewarding work.”
If you’re interested in joining the Street Pastors you will need to undertake a short training course. You can find out more by taking a look at their website.
Cllr Hugh Jones, Lead Member for Communities, Partnerships, Public Protection and Community Safety, said, “Street Pastors are a very welcome and active addition to ensuring the streets of Wrexham are safe for those enjoying the town centre night time economy.
“They are a committed group of individuals and the Police and Council welcome their presence and appreciate the valuable addition they make to public safety.”
