What is a Street Pastor?
Street pastors are trained volunteers from local churches who care about their community.
They patrol in teams of men and women, usually from 8 p.m. to 12 midnight on a Friday night, to care for, listen to and help people who are out on the streets.
A street pastor is someone who is…
- a Christian and is part of a local church;
- concerned for society and their local community;
- willing to engage with people, whatever their perspective on life and wherever they hang out;
- happy to work in a team and in collaboration with other agencies and projects, both statutory and voluntary.
