About GTCC

GUILDFORD TOWN CENTRE CHAPLAINCY

Guildford Town Centre Chaplaincy, including Street Angels, exists to provide support and care for anyone who, for whatever reason, finds themselves in a vulnerable state.

The Town Centre Chaplain and a team of volunteer chaplains visit retailers, businesses, Council offices and the Police Station to provide a listening ear for employees according to their need and to enhance a sense of well-being for individuals and the organisation they work for.

GTCC currently run 3 distinct projects within Guildford:

Our Street Angels teams are well-known in Guildford’s town centre streets late on a Fridays and Saturday night,s for their calming presence, offering practical care and support for anyone in their time of need.

Community Angels are volunteers who befriend vulnerable adults who may face loneliness and isolation.

Volunteer Chaplains provide spiritual and emotional support in the workplace and public spaces such as shopping centres, the police station and the hospital.

The 10th Anniversary Year Appeal by GTCC

We can hardly believe it’s nearly ten years since a small group of people from Guildford churches got together in 2008 with a vision to serve vulnerable people in our town, whatever their circumstances. We’ve made a significant impact in the community but we need your help to continue this valuable work.

We Need Your Help

VOLUNTEER • DONATE • PRAY

GTCC and all our projects rely on generous giving from the local church community, organisations and individual donations. However, the real support comes from people getting involved either by giving their time volunteering on one of our projects or dedicating time to pray for our town and the work we do. We need your support in order to continue this valuable work in our community.

Queen’s Award

FOR VOLUNTARY SERVICES

On Sunday 18th of October 2015 at 6.oopm, the Church of St Nicolas in Guildford was filled with past and present Street Angels and Voluntary Chaplains to witness the presentation of the HM Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee Award for Voluntary Service.

Rod Boreham, Guildford Town Centre Chaplain led a very inspiring service during which HM Lord Lieutenant of Surrey, Mr Michael More-Molyneux presented the Award to Fiona Ford, Guildford Street Angels’ co-ordinator.

“I was hugely impressed with the compassionate open-minded support they offer people in times of vulnerability. My night as an observer on a shift confirmed my view that the Street Angels offer a calm and caring support network”

CLAIR - PARENT & NOW STREET ANGEL

“Town centres patrolled by Street Angels see marked reductions in violent crime, sexual assaults and antisocial behaviour.”
