Cardiff Street Pastors
Cardiff Street Pastors is an initiative of the local churches, working together with the police, Cardiff County Council, University of Wales, South Wales Health Board and local businesses. It’s part of a larger national initiative run by a charity called the Ascension Trust. Street Pastors nationally was launched in Lambeth in 2003 and is now in hundreds of towns and cities across the UK. From the very start it has been endorsed by the Home Office.
Street pastors are trained volunteers from local churches that care about our community. We patrol from 10pm to 4am each Friday and Saturday night to care for, listen to and help people who are out on the streets. The role of a Street Pastor is not about preaching, but is one of caring, listening and helping to show the love of Jesus in practical ways.
We hope to see you on the streets of Cardiff, and if you see us, please come over and say hi!
