Basingstoke Street Pastors
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 on patrol from 10pm to 4am every Friday and Saturday night to care for, listen to and help people who are out on the streets.
We are led by our local Coordinator 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.
