“Street Pastors is about Christians rolling up their sleeves and getting involved in practically responding to the problems of crime and safety. They are like beacons on our streets and I want to see them shining brightly in every constituency.”
David Burrowes, Patron of Ascension Trust
Barnstaple Street Pastors have been patrolling since October 2009. In that time we have seen the Lord Jesus prove his faithfulness week after week in response to his call on our lives and the prayers of his people.
We regard Street Pastors primarily as a prayer ministry with the blue uniforms on the street serving as the eyes and ears (as well as the hands and feet) of the local church, passing needs back to the prayer team where the real work is done.
It is a wonderful honour to be called to represent Christ and watch him at work in our town.
