Market Harborough Street PastorsCharitable Incorporated Organisation Registered Number 1168346
Welcome to our website. Here you will find information about our shifts, our fund raising and our teams.
Street pastors are trained volunteers from local churches and we care about our community. We are usually on patrol from 7.30 pm on alternate Friday nights, visiting Welland Park and The Cube Youth Club at Symington’s Rec before our break and the town centre from 10 pm. On alternate Saturday nights we patrol from 10 pm to 2 pm (or later) mainly in the town centre. We also patrol on Bank Holiday Sundays (Easter Sunday, both May Bank Holidays and the late August Bank Holiday) from 10 pm.
We are there to care for, listen to and help people who are out on the streets.
We are led by our Management Board and our local administrator and we also have support from local churches and community groups in partnership with the police, local council and other statutory agencies.
If you are interested in finding out more about our work, or are interested in becoming a Street Pastor or member of the Prayer Support Team, please contact us using the details on this page.
