Peterborough City Centre Chaplaincy
Request to pray for our City Centre Chaplains and perhaps an
opportunity to volunteer with us.

You may see our City Centre Chaplaincy volunteers in Cathedral Square or other large outdoor areas in the city. They may be stood holding signs that say “Free Hugs” or sat on a bench with the sign “I Will Listen”.
Alternatively our City Centre Chaplaincy volunteers can be found in local establishments such as The Drapers Arms, The College Arms, Argo Lounge and other similar places where they will chat with locals and engage with ‘table talk’ which is a popular conversation game.
Perhaps you have received a gift of kindness from our City Centre Chaplaincy volunteers.
We can sometimes be found setting up a free fruit stall or giving out daffodils to people in
Peterborough city centre that are working, lunching or shopping. The wonderful thing about
the City Centre Chaplaincy is the reaction and response from the public. This is always a
response of interest and the innovative nature of our activities often creates amazing
opportunities for conversation as well as sharing our faith and prayer. If you are interested in
volunteering with our City Centre Chaplaincy team then please contact us directly and we will
contact you with more details. www.lightprojectpeterborough.org.uk/contact/
“As a chaplain it is exciting, rewarding and heartwarming to share God’s unconditional love”
