There are many stories we could tell of the work done by the Street Angels team.  But after one night we had the following email come into the office.

"Hello,  I just wanted to say a big thank you to all of you who helped me last night,  especially the lady I remember spending a lot of time looking after me. I think what you do is wonderful if only there were more nice people like you guys around!  I must say I found the glove in my hair very funny this morning!  Hope to hear back from you thanks again!"

Street Angels,  Watford is a Christian witness to the town in a practical organised and non judgemental approach to being Jesus to each person we meet.

"The Street Angels have already had a positive impact on the atmosphere in the town at the weekends.  They complement the important work of the police and emergency services."

"As the local neighbourhood Inspector for Watford I have found the Chaplaincy to be an invaluable asset to our work. The street angels have been part of our Night Time Economy Structure for several years now and are invaluable in dealing with those who need assistance but whom we do not have the time to deal with.  Officers will regularly ask for support from the Angels which then allows them to carry on with the police tasks required in the town at that time.  I am very grateful for their support and believe the Chaplaincy is indeed an asset to the town."

"I’ve had the pleasure of joining the street angels on several occasions and have seen first hand how they keep the calm in the town centre at night, and help individuals who have run into trouble.   The Watford Town Centre Chaplaincy has the trust of the town – all the members of the local strategic partnership, One Watford, are aware and very supportive of the work they do."

"To me Chaplaincy work is 'Christianity at the Coalface.' To me walking with Jesus is about walking fully in the life in all its different situations.  My journey in faith has on the one hand taken me further into the church establishment and I am now training to be a Reader in the Church of England.  But Chaplaincy work will always be near to the heart of what I do to server God, through His Son, Jesus.  I would like to think that if you sliced me up (and I hope that never happens by the way!), you would find the words running through me like a stick of rock:  Street Angel!"
