Our team of chaplains work with shoppers, traders and businesses alike, and will always try to make time for a chat and a cup of tea with people who want to take some time out of their busy day to talk.

In St Mary's Market there is a Prayer Stall (opposite Robert James’ Jewellers) which is available all the time for people of all faiths, and none. Why not find it and take a little time and space away from the busy-ness of the town centre? A small oasis in the desert of everyday life.

Louise Foster is the volunteer chaplain in St Mary’s market and can be found there most Wednesdays.

Maria Overend covers the Hall Street and Commercial Street area of the town.

All of our chaplains are never too busy to stop, share a story and a brew - keep an eye out for them in town.

For more details on volunteering or what the chaplains do in St Helens, contact the Regional Volunteer Coordinator Anita: anita@mite.org.uk
