Street Angels or similar programmes have been springing up across the UK over the last 6 years. Street Angels are adult volunteers (over 18s), usually from local churches, who care and provide practical support for the people, usually on Friday and/or Saturday nights, who use the night clubs and other leisure and entertainment venues in town centres.

The Across vision is to see people from all backgrounds become disciples of Jesus Christ. Across seeks to do this by working with local Churches to train and organise volunteers in a wide range of outreach and serving activities to share the love of God with those from different cultures. Across is linked with the Mahabba network, which is passionate about motivating and mobilising ordinary Christians to love their Muslim neighbours and to help churches to mentor and multiply dynamic communities of disciples. Across underpins its work in prayer
