Today is our fifteenth birthday!
Fifteen years ago today a response to the needs in Halifax town centre binge drink culture on weekend evenings became Street Angels!
We are so thankful for where God has led us on this 15 year journey:
A model that has been replicated through CNI Network within communities across the UK, Spain, Seychelles, Australia, America and Brasil.
A family of amazing people who are committed to bringing change to local communities.
Reductions in violent crime and anti-social behaviour that saves money and resources for vital services such as the NHS, Paramedics and Police.
Developing new areas of work and impact including: safe place drop-in's; Festival Angels; Youth Angels; within homeless communities; in clubs and pubs through Club Angels; night-time chaplaincy; support for the isolated and lonely in communities; #Do1NiceThing; #FaithAndPoliceTogether; alcohol and safety schools resource; NightChurch; SafeNightOut.party; and Jesus Loves Festivals and Clubbers.
Showcasing that the church is an organisation that brings change within communities and individuals including to MP's, Prime Ministers, the Royal Family, Home Office and through the media.
We are so thankful for all who are part of our 15 year journey! For every volunteer who helps make our streets / clubs / pubs / festivals / communities like new again! We can't celebrate as we had planned to but do join us in thanking God for this vision and journey...
