Course – Coaching – Community – Connecting
The BESOM helps people make a difference. It provides a bridge between those who want to give time, money, things or skills and those who are in need. It ensures what is given is used effectively. The service it provides is free. Needs are referred from local social workers and other local organisations.
How you can give through the Besom in Woking:
1.Giving time – decorating, cleaning or gardening, tell us what you would like to do and we can arrange a project for you
2.Giving things – you can give anything, from sofas and beds to kettles; anything that goes in a home
3.Giving money – our van needs maintenance and we pay rent for a warehouse. Or you can donate for a specific purpose
Often people who have seen the very real and immense needs within our society or experienced the joy of giving and of touching others' lives want to get more involved in a personal way. If you are interested in finding out more about Besom Woking details are below.
Woking Healing on the Streets
Who we are
We are just a group of ordinary people who follow Jesus, gathered from several churches in the Woking area, who have joined together to offer prayer for healing, because we believe God loves you and can heal you from any illness.
Why we do this
We believe that God is alive, powerful and that he longs to have a loving relationship with you. Jesus Christ came to Earth and through his death on the cross showed his love for you. He rose from the dead, proving that he was God and he sent his power here to give you a chance to start again. Jesus can fulfil your deepest needs, forgive any wrong doing, and heal your hurts. We see this happen within our churches and feel compelled to share this good news with others. Healing is one way that you can encounter God's love and power in your life.
Every 1st & 3rd Saturday of the month from 1.00pm - 3.00pm
Where we meet
Outside Origin Bookshop, Woking Town centre outside Christchurch, Jubilee Square, Woking, Surrey GU21 6YG

Street Angels are volunteers who believe that people deserve care and love in their time of need. Those needs could be as a result of homelessness, intoxication, drug abuse, assault or any other issue which has caused personal distress or the potential for physical harm. They help people whoever they are and whatever their situation, for example by listening, caring, offering practical help or by referring people to other (specialist) agencies who can help them. Street Angels have volunteers representing people of different faiths and none. Volunteers are over 18, DBS checked, interviewed and trained.
Street Angels (and similar programmes such as Street Pastors) have been springing up across the UK over the last 2-3 years. They make a really positive impact on crime and antisocial behaviour in town centres (particularly in the vicinity of bars and clubs) by providing a calming presence on the streets late at night.
