Angels of Mersey

8:00pm Monday 2 April on BBC TWO

A new series for BBC Two Angels of Mersey follows the front line work of Liverpool’s chaplains, from the work they do to the lives that they touch.

Keeping the streets of the city safe is a major challenge for the police, but now they have a new religious force to back them up: Christians from churches all over the city have volunteered to become street pastors. They will be out with the quarter of a million people who come into Liverpool for a night out in the city’s clubs and bars every weekend.

Meanwhile at Liverpool University, Rabbi Shmuli Brown is on a mission to track down Jewish students who are starting university in a few weeks time. The Rabbi is part of Chabad, an organization providing a home from home for Jewish students. There are two hundred Jewish students expected on campus this year and when Rabbi Brown’s around, there’s nowhere to hide.
