Andover Street Pastors
Here to Care, Listen and Help.
We are part of a national team first pioneered in 2003, and Street Pastors continues to grow throughout the UK and across the world.
Street pastors are trained volunteers from local churches and we care about our community.
We are usually on patrol from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. on Friday nights and some Saturday nights, to care for, listen to and help people who are out on the streets.
We are led by our local coordinators and we also have support from local churches and community groups in partnership with the police, local council and other statutory agencies.
If you are interested in finding out more about our work, or are interested in becoming a Street Pastor, please contact us using the details on this page.
