The Maidstone Street Pastors initiative was launched in 2008 with the first set of Street Pastors out on the streets of Maidstone in October of that year.
Maidstone is the clubbing capital of Kent with up to 10,000 party goers on a Saturday night. Street Pastors work closely alongside the police, paramedics and the “Urban Blue” bus project to provide emotional, spiritual and practical support to those in need.
Regularly confused as Street ‘Pasties’, Street ‘Pasta’, and Street ‘Patrol’, the pastors have quickly established themselves as an integral part of the Saturday night time economy. Excellent relationships have been built up with door staff, police and the Saturday night revellers and the Pastor’s aim to be “lights in the darkness” has been warmly received.
