Redcliffe students innovating new forms of mission

May 4, 2011

One of our placement students is currently working alongside ‘Serve the City’ in Leuven and is already managing to encourage innovation in the way that the Belgian teams engages on the streets. She shared her experience of weekly placement with the Gloucester ‘Street Pastors’ project and her transferrable skills and knowledge are proving a real asset to the Belgian team. She writes

‘After talking about my experience of Street Pastors in Gloucester, my supervisor really liked the idea and decided he would like to do that in Leuven! So they have asked that while I am here I will help them set up their own version of Street Pastors! Although it probably won’t be running by the time I leave, I am so excited about being involved and have a meeting with the leadership team next week to explain to them in more detail how it works and how we can get things going.’
