Doncaster Street Pastors

Welcome to the website of the Doncaster Street Pastors.

We are part of the international Street Pastors network, dedicated to serving those out late at night on the streets of Doncaster.

 

We are committed to bringing the love of Jesus in practical ways to those in need. Our pastors patrol the streets of central Doncaster in teams of three every Saturday night, as well as on bank holiday Sundays, race nights during Leger week, Mad Friday and other special occasions. By caring, listening, and helping – through providing free flip-flops to ladies walking bare-foot, or water to those needing it, or giving first aid to the injured, or accompanying vulnerable people to safety, or simply listening to those who want to talk – we aim to keep the people of Doncaster safe when having a night out in town, and to share the love of Jesus with all whom we meet.

 

We do not go out to preach. We simply go out to share God’s love by helping people be safe, and enjoy their night out. However, should people ask, Street Pastors will share their faith whilst on patrol Since we started patrolling in December 2011, we have had contact with over seventeen-and-a-half thousand people and helped nearly eleven-and-a-half thousand.

Doncaster Street Pastors’ presented to king charles iii

 

On  Wednesday 9th November 2022, Rod Morrison, our Coordinator, had the privilege of representing Doncaster Street Pastors at a civic reception in Doncaster Mansion House for King Charles and the Queen Consort. The reception was held to celebrate the conferring of City status on the Borough of Doncaster.

Rod was one of many representatives from 60 local voluntary organisations and charities working and supporting people across the Borough.  The King spoke with half the representatives whilst the Queen Consort spoke with the other half, each having a word with every individual in their line.

King Charles had clearly heard of Street and through Rod he thanked all our volunteers for what we do, saying “Keep up the good work”

People have said that it was an honour to meet the king. However, Rod said that the honour was representing all the Doncaster Street Pastors’ volunteers. They are the ones who are out on the streets every Saturday come rain or shine – though we don’t get a lot of shine late at night; either that, or volunteers are supporting the Street Pastors in their prayers every week.
