Belper Street Angels is officially up and running following a successful launch event at St John’s Chapel, Belper, last Friday.

Paul Blakey, the national founder of Street Angels, led a short commissioning service for the 19 volunteers who have so far joined the project and asked for God’s blessing on their work.

Hope for Belper co-ordinator Gareth Greenwood spoke about how the Street Angels project had evolved from Hope’s actitvities over the past four and a half years while project co-ordinator Rachel Marszalek gave a reading from Matthew 25, 35-40.

The service, which was attended by church leaders from across the town as well as Hope representatives and Street Angels volunteers, was followed by Buck’s Fizz (the drink, not the band!) and nibbles.

Afterwards, Paul joined the by-now-regular Friday night ‘patrol’ along with members of the Belper team. They are pictured outside the Memorial Gardens, Paul on the right.

Street Angels are still on the lookout for potential volunteers willing to give up one Friday night a month. If you care about young people and would like help make Belper a safer community for all please contact
