Hackney Street Pastors
For over ten years we’ve been caring, listening and helping people in Hackney. We offer water, flip flops, a listening ear and a friendly smile.
We come from different churches in Hackney make our streets more peaceful and safe at night. We patrol on Friday and Saturday nights from eleven o’clock to the early hours.
There is a need for a loving presence on the streets of Hackney and we are always seeking more people to join as Street and Prayer Pastors, or as School Pastors.
If you see us on the streets please come over and say hi.
