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 help people be safe, and enjoy their night out
Since we started patrolling in December 2011, we have had contact with over fifteen-and-a-half thousand people and helped nearly ten-and-a-half thousand.
