During COP 26 Glasgow City Centre will be busy with guests from across the world attending the conference. Glasgow Street Pastors has been ‘listening, caring and helping’ on the streets of Glasgow for the past 12 years assisting individuals who become vulnerable or require assistance for a variety of reasons. The work is done by committed Christians, minimum age 18, from a wide range of church backgrounds, united in a desire to demonstrate the love and compassion of God in very practical acts of service.

Volunteers from churches in the Glasgow Presbytery are invited to join with Street Pastors to provide an additional caring presence on the city streets. Working with experienced Street Pastor’s, you will have the opportunity to be involved in a two-hour afternoon patrol (1-3pm) or three-hour evening patrol. (8-11pm)

An application form can be obtained from coordinator@gsp.scot. Your minister or church leader will be contacted for a brief comment in support of your application. A training day has been arranged on Saturday 2 October at Sandyford Henderson Memorial Church from 10:00-15:00. Attendance is essential.

Volunteers for BB and Crossover

August 27, 2021

Our Boys’ Brigade and Crossover groups would each be grateful of new volunteers as they plan to restart their valuable work in the new term.  This could mean anything from helping with a specific skill, joining a rota to help every few weeks, to supporting the leaders on a weekly / bi-weekly basis.  Please would you commit this to prayer, and consider whether God may be calling you, or someone you know, to volunteer?  Involvement is as rewarding for the leaders and helpers as it is for the young people who attend.  If you would like to help with a specific group, please speak to any of the existing leaders or drop us an email.  If you are open to helping with any group or are unsure where you could be of most help, please email the office and we will be happy to explore the options with you. office@tpc.org.uk
