God After Dark (GAD)

The GAD team is based in St Mary’s Church Centre, working in conjunction with the Street Angels on busy weekend nights in Watford town centre.

The Church Centre offers a safe haven of quiet, peace and refuge, with beds made up on the floor, under soft lighting. Here we can care for those who have been using the pubs and clubs, usually vulnerable young people who need a period of rest and recovery.

Sometimes people are brought in by their friends, and we often have interesting conversations with these people as they sit and wait for their friends to recover before going home by taxi.

We have also had homeless people come in for refreshments and for a sleep in a safe place where they do not have to keep one eye open.

GAD is an expression of our love for the community.
