Street pastors are trained volunteers from local churches and we care about our community. We are usually on patrol from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m. on a Friday or Saturday night to care for, listen to and help people who are out on the streets. We don’t go out to Bible-bash or promote one church/denomination or discriminate based on religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, age, gender etc. – we want to act as Jesus would on the streets of Belfast: available and willing to help all with practical and spiritual help.

We give out flipflops, help people get home safe, calm anti-social behaviour, give a listening ear, stay with vulnerable people etc. If someone wants prayer, we are happy to pray as well.

We are led by our local coordinator and management team with support from local churches. We partner with other voluntary groups, the police, and Belfast City Council. If you are interested in finding out more about our work, or are interested in becoming a Street Pastor, please contact us

Belfast Street Pastors currently has over 100 trained volunteers from over 50 different churches, representing 15 denominations and 8 different nationalities!!!
