SP Belfast Shaftsbury Square - removing bottles reducedWe are ordinary Christians from many different churches and even nationalities!

Street Pastors is the church in action on the streets to care, listen and help.

We meet every Saturday evening at 10:30pm to pray and get our equipment ready (flipflops, first aid kits, water, gloves for bottles etc). Then we head out into the streets in teams of 3 or 4 whatever the weather and do the following:

  • pick up bottles and broken glass (to prevent injury)
  • give out flipflops,
  • calm anti-social behaviour,
  • provide a listening ear
  • signpost to other help.
  • stay with vulnerable people until we are sure they have a safe way home.
  • pray with anyone who wants prayer, but we don’t preach or push ‘religion’

Beth & Paul with shamrocksWe normally get back to base at 2:30 or 3am, write up some notes, pray and go home.
