Out and about

The Churches of Weymouth and Portland are regularly out and about in lots of ways - Street Pastors are around the town every Friday and Saturday night, there are Soup runs and Food banks, Healing on the Streets, and much more - see the links here and under other categories on the website.

Weekdays 9:30 - 4pmSt Paul's, Abbotsbury Road

St. Paul's Outreach Trading or S.P.O.T was opened in October 1998 to provide much needed funding for St. Paul's Church, by recycling useable goods at affordable prices. It serves as a valuable ‘window’ for the church in the local community as well as helping to generate income to support our mission.

The shop stocks an array of good quality donated items from clothing, bedding, household items, shoes, bags to DVDs and CDs.

Prices are very reasonable.

There is a daily special offer. This is advertised on a blackboard in the window.

The manager and volunteers are happy to listen and chat with our customers.

New volunteers are always welcome; please contact SPOT Manager.

Street Pastors have been working within the night time economy of Weymouth since 2008, teams drawn from 17 local churches offer reassurance, safety and support through listening, caring and helping.

The teams operate on Friday and Saturday nights from 10pm to 4am, and are now a familiar sight in their blue uniforms. Amongst their kit of supplies they carry bottles of water, flip flops ( for those whose high heels are just too much), and also have an endless number of lollies!

The team are there to be a listening ear if it is needed as well as sorting out very practical issues in the night and help to make Weymouth “a great place to be”. The street and prayer teams are showing God’s love in a variety of practical ways.
