“Street Pastors is about Christians rolling up their sleeves and getting involved in practically responding to the problems of crime and safety. They are like beacons on our streets and I want to see them shining brightly in every constituency.”
David Burrowes, Patron of Ascension Trust
Welcome to Dublin Street Pastors
Care, Listen & Help
Thanks for stopping by the Dublin Street Pastors website!
We are part of an international team first pioneered in 2003, and Street Pastors continues to grow throughout the UK, Ireland and across the world.
Street pastors are trained volunteers from local churches and we care about our community. We are led by our local leadership team and coordinator. We also have support from local churches across denominations. We serve in collaboration with other community groups, An Garda Síochána, the local council and other statutory agencies seeking to establish safer communities.
Street Pastors is a great opportunity for ordinary Christians to join in God’s mission. It is about seeing and serving people, with the eyes and heart of Jesus, on the streets of Dublin while engaging with people in spaces where often the church has little or no presence. This is an exciting multi-church initiative, open to those over 18, with no upper age limit.
If you are interested in finding out more about our work, or maybe you are interested in becoming a Street or a Prayer Pastor, please use the ‘Contact us’ tab below. You can also use the email address or phone number (during office hours) visible at the top of this webpage.
Dublin Street Pastors was officially launched on the 15th May 2019. Our teams usually operate on Saturday nights 10pm until 4am. Throughout the year they also often serve at special events such as Junior & Leaving certificate nights, Rag week, St. Patricks Day, etc.
Covid-19 update: During the current situation of Coronavirus our teams are operating differently to usual. Our operating hours are Saturdays 9pm until midnight. Our desire is to maintain a positive presence in the night time economy while not assisting in the spread of Covid-19. Team interactions with the public will be more distanced than usual. Teams are using additional PPE for their own and the public’s protection.
Dublin Street Pastors is registered with the Irish charity regulator Registered Charity Number (RCN): 20204631
