Our 2015:10 celebrations continue - this month is our annual International Day of Prayer for the Night-time Economy which takes place on 28th February - here is the press release:

Christian Nightlife Initiatives (CNI) Network is encouraging people to pray for the night-time economy of our towns and cities as part of an International Day of Prayer.

The day, which happens annually on 28th February, will encourage people to celebrate all that is achieved within the night-time economy including significant reductions in violent crime, community transformation and the investment made into local areas through volunteer initiatives such as Street Angels, Street Chaplains, Town Pastors, Youth Angels and Club Angels.

Prayer needs include situations around human trafficking, binge drinking and depression; young people around alcohol and safety; and for the night-time industry and its workers.

Founder of Street Angels - CNI Network, Paul Blakey MBE, comments, "CNI Network's Bible verse is Isaiah 58:12 which says, 'You will be called the one who makes city streets like new again'. Through the amazing work of volunteers across the world we are seeing this become a reality as crime is reduced and 'no-go' areas are made safe. God's Kingdom of city streets becoming like new again is exciting when partner agencies such as the Police share crime statistics that prove when Street Angels patrol an area crime is reduced. This International Day of Prayer aims to mobilise people to pray for our communities at night so that more and more streets, and people, are made like new again!"

This month Paul and Jean are visiting Uxbridge Street Angels, Thanet Community Pastors, Scarborough Street Angels, Aylesbury Street Angels, Bedford Street Angels, Leeds Club Angels and Blackpool Street Angels with the 'Volunteers are Amazing - thank you' booklets.

The CNI Network Trustees are meeting in York (if you have anything you would like to have them discuss please email Paul) and CNI are hosting a Festival Network get together for those who lead festival work. 

We have also updated the Local Projects details on our web site (if you are involved in a project please check this is accurate or if any details need to be added).
Many thanks to those who have signed up to support the work of CNI Network monthly and those who have given donations. To support our work as we work towards 'supporting projects supporting people' see this page on our web site. The trustees will be looking at finances when they meet later this month - if each local project gave £300 a year this would cover most of our expenditure - please do consider doing this. 
The 'Street Angels - the amazing story from binge to better' book was recently emailed to every MP and Police and Crime Commissioner to give them the opportunity to read about ways volunteers are impacting and changing communities and people:
"I found it a joy to read, and the story of CNI is truly inspirational."
Alan Hardwick, Police and Crime Commissioner for Lincolnshire

"Many thanks for sending this. Keep up the great work!"

David Rutley MP for Macclesfield

Copies of the paperback are available at a growing range of stockists as well as online or at Amazon. Books are also available to local CNI projects and retailers at a discount.
