Glasgow West End
“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 Glasgow West End Street Pastors
Hello from West End Street Pastors (Glasgow)!
We are part of the Street Pastors movement, pioneered in London 2003, and Scotland’s 21st Group. We launched on 20th Feburary 2015 in Partick Trinity with 75 people from all parts of the community joining us, and now patrol every weekend.
New volunteers to join the West End Street Pastors are needed!
Candidates need to be active in their local Christian church, available to serve one Friday or Saturday evening per month (10pm to 2am) and able to complete five days of training, which takes place throughout the year. Use the Contact information below to get in touch and find out training dates.
West End Street pastors are trained volunteers from churches right across the West End of Glasgow, who care about our community. If you would like to join us as a Street Pastor or a Prayer pastor, we would love to hear from you!
We are usually on patrol from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Friday or Saturday nights, from Kelvin Bridge to Partick Train station, although we have a particular focus on Byres Road and Ashton Lane. We provide a listening ear, protect vulnerable people from harm, provide first aid and flipflops, calm down situations and offer support where we can.
If you are interested in finding out more about our work, or are interested in becoming a Street Pastor, please contact us using the details at the bottom of this page.
