LISTENING, CARING & HELPING SINCE 2007
Hello, I just wanted to say a huge thank you! I was out on the town last night at and took a nasty turn and became very unwell. Not sure if it was just a simple case of too much alcohol or something else. But a lovely group of ladies from this organisation helped me and cared for me and took me to the Safe Space you guys are amazing and I will be forever thankful for your help! THANK YOU!
Portsmouth – October 2021
Portsmouth Street & School PastorsListening, Caring & Helping in the Streets since 2007 | Friendship, Safety & Care in Schools since 2016
In 2022 we celebrated 15 years serving the Lord in the city of Portsmouth. Watch our 15th Anniversary Commissioning Service – a special event featuring volunteers past, present and future, city leaders from the council and police, and other special guests.
Portsmouth Street Pastors was born out of a prayerful desire of churches in Portsmouth to come together as one united body, to be the ‘hands and feet’ of Jesus by providing support in the city’s night time economy. The first patrol took place in 2007, and our Street Pastors have been visiting the city centre and Southsea every weekend since.
In 2016 the need grew towards our city’s schools also, and ‘School Pastors’ was born. Our School Pastor volunteers visit two secondary schools in the city – one in the centre and one to the east. Visits take place at break and lunch times, and offer an opportunity to spend time listening to and encouraging the children and their teachers.
