Boscombe Angels is a project set up by Churches Together in Boscombe (Bournemouth) in July 2010. Our aim is to be a practical, caring, non judgemental Christian presence within our local community.Similar projects can be found in towns and cities across the UK. ( For more information visit www.sa-cni.org.uk).
You can find us from 9pm every Friday night on the Boscombe streets ( all Year) and beaches ( in the summer) engaging with the local community. We are happy to support and assist anyone, young or old, who might find themselves in a vulnerable situation at night. We also are out on Saturday nights if the 02 Academy is open and expecting large numbers of people. Besides the practical help we will always support everyone in prayer and pray with those who ask us.
We aim to listen, to care, to offer practical help and/or provide information on how to connect to agencies in the area who offer support. Bournemouth Borough Council and the local Police fully support our project.
