“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
Fife Street Pastors
Welcome to Fife Street Pastors! We are a group of committed Christians who are out as volunteers on the streets across Fife helping our community by listening, caring and helping those who we meet, giving practical help, a sometimes word of prayer and sharing our faith when asked about it. Our Street Pastors come from a number of local churches in Fife and we are always keen to speak to anyone interested in joining us. Fife Street Pastors is newly formed in 2021 by merging teams in Dunfermline, Kirkcaldy, and Cowdenbeath and we have active patrols on the street in each of these areas.
Dunfermline: We are currently running evening patrols on a Saturday from 6.30pm until 10.30pm where we focus on the town centre pubs and nightlife. There is also a Saturday daytime patrol from 2pm till 4pm where we help the public when shopping and out for coffee and a chat.
Kirkcaldy: We are doing daytime patrols in the high street from 2pm till 4pm on Saturdays and hope to expand this to the evening when we can. We love being about the town centre area and seeing and chatting with people we meet there.
Cowdenbeath: We have afternoon and evening patrols, focused on helping local young people. We care for our older generation as well and keep in regular phone contact with those we have built up relationships with. Our Street Pastors are a well-established part of the community and well known at ‘The Clearing’ in the High Street where you can pop in for a chat.
