The work of Exeter Street Pastors (SP), though often of a practical nature, is in fact a spiritual ministry.  Without the Spirit’s guidance and intervention the immediate and even eternal effectiveness of our interactions with whomever we meet would be minimal.

In recognition of this we have a group of people known as Prayer Pastors (PP). There are at least two PP’s in each team who are deployed at the same time as the SP’s are on the streets.  Their role is to intercede for Exeter and respond in prayer to phone messages from the teams and to the radio instructions/concerns by all in the night time economy.  This enables the PP’s who are based at a church in the city to pray into each situation as it arises.

We are aware of how important this role is and it is exciting to see our prayers being answered quickly and in ways that are often unexpected.  PP’s are the power house of the work and no team is deployed without this prayer cover.

If you want to see how this works in practice please get in touch and we would be happy for you to join one of the teams as an active observer for all or part of the evening.  A church leaders reference would be required if you decide to join us. If you would like to find out more, please contact us.
