What is a STREET PASTOR?

Street pastors are trained volunteers from local churches who care about their community.
They patrol in teams of men and women, usually from 7.30 p.m. to 11pm on a Friday and Saturday night 10pm to 4am, to care for, listen to and help people who are out on the streets.

A street pastor is someone who is…
a Christian and is part of a local church;
concerned for society and their local community;
willing to engage with people, whatever their perspective on life and wherever they hang out;
happy to work in a team and in collaboration with other agencies and projects, both statutory and voluntary.

Prayer Pastors are a vital part of what Street Pastors do. A Prayer Pastor is someone with a desire to make a difference through prayer in the city/town they live in, and willing to invest in the lives of others.
