Custody Chaplains needed for Somerset

Just had this from our Churches Together mailing:

Did you know that from July this year all the custody suites at police stations in Somerset (apart from Yeovil) will be closing? From then anybody arrested within an area from Porlock to Wells to Weston-super-Mare and even beyond will be taken to a brand new custody facility in Bridgwater. Many of these people will be frightened and far from home so the search is on more volunteer Custody Chaplains. There is an urgent need for Christians who are loving listeners, non-judgmental and prayerful. The police are very supportive of this ministry and full training is given. Please spread the word! For more information email ChAT or phone 01934 643533

Here's an earlier post about the Weston custody chaplains project.
