Paul and Jean joined the amazing team of Club Angels in Leeds on Friday (19th April). The evening started with Beth Tash talking about training that took place in Croydon the previous evening. Twenty people took part in the training and it is hoped Croydon Club Angels will launch soon with people from other localities in London wanting to launch Club Angels in local Tiger Tiger and other bars.
We then heard from the team leaders in Tiger Tiger Leeds and the Student Bar at Leeds University. They spoke of talking to girls in the ladies toilets and telling them that they are beautiful because God made them beautiful and of the unity and joy between team members. The door-staff in the clubs recognise that when Club Angels are not around the atmosphere in the club is one of chaos and violence. There are plans to follow up those who have connected with the Club Angels at the end of term with BBFU (bacon buttie for you) - bacon butties delivered free of charge to student houses to bless them!
The team then had training on listening to God in terms of asking God to highlight people that He wants to speak to - this was later put into practice with one Club Angel having a message for a brunette in a red beret and a name linked to her and a penguin. Both came into the club at the same time and it was great to connect them to God who loves them and wants to connect with them.
It was great to wander round the club, chat to people and see a little of the amazing work of Club Angels. Club Angels is currently developing a "How to start Club Angels" page on this web site and it is hoped that we can begin to see this working across the UK (and beyond).
