The Story

The whole world is about to change…but first the forest of Greenwood is getting very crowded indeed.

Apprentice Angels are looking for a Shepherd, a Shepherd is searching for a lost Sheep and a disguised king is hunting for a very special baby. Confusion reigns, identities mistaken and loyalties betrayed; will things ever get sorted out?

Come and see the story of the first Christmas as you’ve never seen it before. A charming, funny and enchanting re-telling of the Nativity story, jam- packed with beautiful music, audience participation, and bags full of family fun.

Too crowded? Is there room left for anything more? Join Saltmine Theatre Company this Christmas to discover how there is a place for everyone in this story.

Street Pastors - Volunteers Needed

We have received the following message from Daventry Street Pastors. You can find out more about the national organisation on their website: www.streetpastors.org.

Daventry Street Pastors volunt

"For the last eight years Street Pastors have patrolled Daventry town centre and estates at weekends offering support to any one they meet. These volunteers from local Christian Churches who care about the community, have provided conversation, water, First Aid and their famous Lollipops; as well as defusing conflict and making the streets safer by picking up cans, glass and other potentially dangerous items. In the 12 months to 31st December 2017 the patrols interacted with 452 people.

Unfortunately due to retirement and ill health, the number of Street Pastors available for Patrols has reduced making it difficult for us to be on the street as often as we would like. In the last quarter of 2017 we were only able to put out seven patrols. Despite this we liaised with 112 people of both genders and different ethnic and cultural backgrounds.

To continue to serve the community in Daventry as we would wish, more volunteers are essential. Street Pastors need to be good listeners and stay calm in tense situations. Street Pastors are blind to differences of all kinds between people and treat everyone they meet with equal respect and courtesy. Patrols are carried out on foot on Friday or Saturday evenings from 8.00 until about midnight. All Street Pastors are fully trained and provided with a uniform.

Anyone who is over 18 (there is no upper age limit) and want to know more about what it is to be a Street Pastor, may be able to join a team as an “Observer” and get some experience of what a patrol is like.

Anyone who would like to join a patrol or just wants some more information, should please leave their Name and Postal Address together with their Email address and/or telephone contact number with our Group Co-ordinator and Senior Street Pastor on either of the following:-

Email: daventrystreetpastors@gmail.com or

Telephone: 07474 545 785

We aim to respond within 48 hours. "
