Street pastors are trained volunteers from local churches who care about their community.


They patrol in teams of men and women, usually from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. on a Saturday night, to listen to, to care for and to help people who are out on the streets of Kirkwall.

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.
