-Do the little things

-that you saw and heard from me.

0:00:090:00:13

-The words of St David in his sermon

-on the hill in Llanddewi Brefi.

0:00:140:00:18

-With St David's Day just passed...

0:00:180:00:21

-..it's apt that we follow

-our patron saint's lead.

0:00:210:00:24

-We'll do that

-by celebrating people...

0:00:240:00:27

-..who give their time, energy

-and generosity to help others.

0:00:280:00:32

-Tonight's singing

-comes from Bishopston.

0:00:590:01:02

-We'll meet some of the members

-who volunteer in the church shop.

0:01:020:01:07

-You never know

-who's going to come in.

0:01:080:01:11

-We'll have a performance

-from Angharad Brinn.

0:01:110:01:15

-And Nigel will join the night-time

-volunteers on Swansea's streets.

0:01:150:01:20

-What's your name?

0:01:210:01:22

-What's your name?

-

-TJ.

0:01:220:01:23

-Let's go for a walk.

0:01:230:01:25

-The first day of March...

0:01:290:01:31

-..has been a national festival

-for the Welsh for centuries.

0:01:310:01:35

-We celebrate on 1 March...

0:01:350:01:37

-..because it's said that

-St David died on this date in 589.

0:01:380:01:42

-We're joining a full congregation

-at St Teilo's Church...

0:01:430:01:46

-..one of the oldest Christian sites

-on the Gower.

0:01:470:01:50

-St Teilo

-was a contemporary of St David.

0:01:500:01:53

-Both apparently went on pilgrimage

-together to Jerusalem.

0:01:530:01:57

-Leading the singing is the local

-musician, Alun Tregelles Williams.

0:01:570:02:02

-As the sun sets on Swansea Bay,

-the city lights up again...

0:05:380:05:42

-..to welcome hundreds of people

-to enjoy the night life.

0:05:420:05:46

-The Reverend Jill-Hailey Harries

-and a group of local Christians...

0:05:470:05:51

-..are preparing

-to walk the pavements too.

0:05:510:05:54

-I've come to join them.

0:05:550:05:56

-I'll put you to work.

0:05:570:05:58

-We'll pack bottles of water

-and flip-flops.

0:05:580:06:01

-These are important.

0:06:010:06:03

-They're useless to you but they're

-good to tie back girls' hair...

0:06:030:06:08

-..if they're ill.

0:06:080:06:11

-Jill, tell me about

-the history of Street Pastors.

0:06:120:06:16

-It dates back to 2003.

0:06:160:06:19

-A man called Les Isaac...

0:06:190:06:21

-..saw there was a need to do

-something among young people...

0:06:220:06:26

-..who hung around on streets

-and created trouble.

0:06:260:06:30

-He started the work in Brixton.

0:06:300:06:33

-It's spread.

0:06:330:06:34

-People have seen that

-going out among the people...

0:06:350:06:38

-..and trying to get to know them

-has made a difference.

0:06:380:06:41

-Before going on Swansea's busy

-streets on Saturday nights...

0:06:420:06:46

-..there's time for a prayer.

0:06:460:06:48

-Lord, make me an instrument

-of thy peace.

0:06:490:06:52

-Where there is hatred,

-let me sow love.

0:06:520:06:56

-I'm a little sceptical and nervous

-because I'm not sure...

0:07:010:07:05

-..how those out enjoying themselves

-will respond to the pastors.

0:07:060:07:10

-On the whole, people appreciate us.

0:07:100:07:13

-We don't have people

-shouting nasty comments.

0:07:130:07:16

-They usually say positive things.

0:07:160:07:20

-We help people,

-walking them to the taxi rank...

0:07:200:07:26

-..or we might call an ambulance

-or someone's parents.

0:07:260:07:30

-We just want to ensure

-that they go back safely.

0:07:300:07:35

-Their condition varies.

0:07:360:07:38

-They might be drunk or they might

-have a cut from walking barefoot.

0:07:390:07:44

-It could be a minor injury.

0:07:450:07:47

-Young girls often walk for a bit

-and their shoes start to pinch.

0:07:480:07:52

-They take them off. New shoes -

-wearing them out for the first time.

0:07:520:07:56

-There's glass on the ground

-and they step on it.

0:07:560:07:59

-That's where the flip-flops come in.

0:08:000:08:02

-We're clearing this up because

-it's glass. It could be a danger.

0:08:030:08:07

-Where are the Street Pastors

-when you need them?!

0:08:130:08:16

-There are two bottles down here.

0:08:160:08:18

-I've done my good deed for tonight.

0:08:180:08:21

-Where are they?

0:08:210:08:22

-They'll get the sack!

0:08:220:08:24

-I'll put them in the bin.

0:08:260:08:27

-Our work is just starting.

-We have many hours left.

0:08:280:08:32

-Join us later.

0:08:320:08:34

-One establishment that's a focus

-for many societies in Bishopston...

0:11:020:11:07

-..is the Christian bookshop

-and cafe, The Lamplighter...

0:11:070:11:11

-..which is run

-by a team of volunteers.

0:11:120:11:14

-Gaynor, you're a faithful member

-of St Teilo's Church.

0:11:170:11:21

-You also volunteer at

-The Lamplighter. What's its history?

0:11:210:11:25

-It started about 24 years ago.

0:11:260:11:29

-It was the brainchild

-of a former priest at the church...

0:11:300:11:34

-..a woman called Tessa Lee.

0:11:340:11:36

-She wanted to bring the

-light of Christ from the church...

0:11:370:11:41

-..up to the village.

0:11:420:11:45

-Her dream

-was to have a little shop...

0:11:460:11:49

-..where you could buy

-religious books and cards.

0:11:490:11:53

-Also a place for the community to

-come and have a cuppa and some cake.

0:11:530:11:59

-Why is it called The Lamplighter?

0:12:010:12:03

-Why is it called The Lamplighter?

-

-It's from the Bible.

0:12:030:12:04

-From the book of Matthew.

0:12:040:12:06

-The light of Christ in the world.

-That's how it got its name.

0:12:070:12:11

-The Lamplighter

-is part of the church.

0:12:130:12:17

-The work done here is for charity.

0:12:170:12:20

-People give up their time for free.

0:12:200:12:23

-It's worked very well

-over many years.

0:12:240:12:27

-People think there's not much Welsh

-in the Gower Peninsula.

0:12:290:12:33

-But that's been proved wrong.

0:12:340:12:37

-After I moved here

-around 20 years ago...

0:12:370:12:40

-..I learnt there was a Welsh society

-in Bishopston that met every month.

0:12:400:12:45

-It's nice that Welsh speakers

-go there on Monday evenings...

0:12:450:12:50

-..and listen to guests

-address the society in Welsh.

0:12:500:12:54

-What's interesting is you never know

-who's going to come in.

0:12:560:13:00

-The Gower's a beautiful place,

-as you know.

0:13:000:13:04

-People come here to buy some things

-while they're out walking.

0:13:040:13:09

-Anyone could call in.

0:13:090:13:12

-Sometimes it's quiet,

-sometimes it's very busy.

0:13:120:13:15

-# For Wales our land

0:13:210:13:25

-# Oh, father, hear our prayer

0:13:250:13:30

-# The blessed vineyard

0:13:300:13:34

-# Entrusted to our care

0:13:340:13:39

-# May you protect her

0:13:400:13:44

-# Always faithfully

0:13:440:13:50

-# And prosper here

0:13:510:13:54

-# All truth and purity

-# For your Son's sake

0:14:020:14:06

-# Who bought us with His blood

0:14:060:14:12

-# O make our Wales

0:14:130:14:17

-# In your own image, Lord

0:14:170:14:24

-# O come the day

0:14:470:14:50

-# When o'er our barren land

0:14:510:14:56

-# Reviving winds blow

0:14:570:15:00

-# Sent from God's own hand

0:15:010:15:05

-# As grace pours down

0:15:060:15:10

-# On parched and arid sand

0:15:100:15:15

-# We will bear fruit

0:15:160:15:20

-# For Christ by his command

0:15:200:15:26

-# Come with one voice

0:15:260:15:30

-# And gentle vigour sing

-# The virtues of

0:15:380:15:43

0:15:430:15:52

-Back in the centre of Swansea, I'm

-out with some special volunteers...

0:16:030:16:09

-..Street Pastors.

0:16:090:16:11

-Around two or three in the morning,

-when places start to shut...

0:16:110:16:16

-..that's when they start

-to get busier.

0:16:160:16:19

-Over the next few hours, the Street

-Pastors will be a lot busier.

0:16:200:16:24

-You're now a part of the street.

0:16:250:16:28

-People expect you to be here.

0:16:290:16:31

-When people see you,

-they know what you do.

0:16:310:16:34

-They probably seek you out.

0:16:340:16:37

-Some come up to us asking for help.

0:16:370:16:40

-That's why I have this in my ear.

-We're also linked to CCTV.

0:16:400:16:44

-If they see someone in trouble,

-they can call us.

0:16:450:16:49

-Are you alright?

0:16:500:16:51

-Are you alright?

-

-Aye. I'm just sobering up.

0:16:510:16:53

-It's been an eye-opener

-to see what you do.

0:16:540:16:56

-The preparation and the good work.

0:16:570:16:59

-To do that on cold nights,

-fair play to you.

0:17:000:17:03

-Where would Jesus be

-if he was here?

0:17:040:17:06

-We all have young children

-and young people in our families...

0:17:060:17:11

-..who go out to enjoy themselves.

0:17:110:17:13

-If something happens to them, there

-is someone here watching over them.

0:17:150:17:19

-Every parent and every family member

-wants them to get home safely.

0:17:200:17:24

-What's nice is the Street Pastors

-are going up to people...

0:17:240:17:29

-..helping them

-and giving them water.

0:17:290:17:32

-I doff my cap

-to the work that they do.

0:17:320:17:34

-They do great work.

0:17:350:17:36

-Drink some water. Sip that slowly.

0:17:370:17:40

-Don't stay there.

-What's your name, by the way?

0:17:410:17:44

-TJ.

0:17:450:17:46

-I'm Jill. Nice to meet you.

0:17:460:17:48

-Let's go for a walk.

0:17:490:17:50

-Brilliant!

0:17:530:17:54

-They do a better job than anyone

-else could do. Just brilliant.

0:17:540:17:59

-"If you're a Welshman

-fond of your land

0:21:170:21:19

-"And fond of your brave fathers

0:21:190:21:21

-"Keep a festival for your seed

-- no matters what outsiders say

0:21:220:21:27

-"Wear a leek in your cap

-and wear it in your heart."

0:21:270:21:32

-Our visit to the Gower Peninsula

-has come to an end for now.

0:21:370:21:41

-I've enjoyed learning

-about this wonderful area...

0:21:420:21:45

-..and about the people

-who are so willing to help others.

0:21:450:21:49

-People who realize

-St David's words...

0:21:490:21:52

-..about the greatness

-of performing small deeds.
