Hackney Street Pastors

About Us

5959257-large-300x201We come from many different churches in Hackney to bring a Christlike presence to the streets on Friday and Saturday nights. There’s no such thing as a typical Street Pastor – we are different ages, nationalities, and we come from all walks of life. All of us care about Hackney and the people who make it such a lively and interesting place.

We have built up good relationships with door staff and with people who are out for a good time in the evening.

Our patrols are about caring, listening and helping others. On a typical night we:

  • build relationships within the community
  • make sure people are safe
  • offer a listening ear
  • help vulnerable people
  • clear broken glass and bottles
  • give out flip flops preventing injury to feet from glass
  • supply bottles of water to those who are dehydrated
  • give out blankets to keep people warm
  • care for people who are hurt or unwell until help arrives
