Thank you for visiting Lewisham Street Pastors

Street Pastors is an initiative of Ascension Trust and was pioneered in London in 2003. On that first night, 18 volunteers took to the streets of Brixton – 15 women and 3 men. There are now over 11,000 trained street pastors, and they play an active part in 270 towns and cities around the UK. There is also a growing number of Street Pastors teams overseas.

We have been patrolling the streets of Lewisham for over ten years.

We are fully trained volunteers from local churches who care about our community.

We are usually on patrol from 11 pm to 4 am on a Friday or Saturday night to care for, listen to and help people who are out on the streets.

We are led by our co-ordinator Carol Bostridge, and we also have support from local churches and community groups, in partnership with the Police, Lewisham Council, CCTV and other statutory agencies.

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 on this page.
