Welcome to Evesham Street Pastors. We are out on Fridays, the occasional Saturday and “Super Sundays” – that’s the Sundays preceding a Bank Holiday Monday – listening, caring and helping on the streets of Evesham. A multi-church initiative backed by Churches Together in Evesham and District (CTED). Please check our Facebook page or our Twitter feed for each week’s details. If you are interested in finding out more about our work, or are interested in becoming a Street Pastor, please Contact Us.
Update during the COVID-19 Lockdown: Our work as Street Pastors enables us to meet with hundreds of people who are out enjoying the nightlife of Evesham. We give out dozens of bottles of water, flip-flop and lots of lollies. We also have many conversations; sometimes we are able to help or point people in the direction of specific organisations who can assist with the challenges of everyday life. In these are difficult times we are unable to help with water and flip-flops. However we are still here and still thinking about and praying for those people we meet regularly whilst on patrol. If, at this time, we can help, do email us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best.
Update for August–September 2019: We have decided to carry out a couple of short (two-hour) patrols each month now that people are out and about in the town again. However, following Government guidelines, we have to maintain social distancing but we are not wearing masks, so that people can see our face(s) and speak more easily. We will have to “owe” a few hugs for the time being and look forward to the time when we can literally come alongside people again. We pray that the threat from this Covid-19 virus is reduced significantly soon. Keep safe, everyone.
