Portsmouth Street & School Pastors

Listening, Caring & Helping in the Streets since 2007 | Friendship, Safety & Care in Schools since 2016

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.

In 2020, as with the city, the country and the rest of the world, our Street and School Pastor teams were impacted by the global pandemic and national lockdown. However our teams continued to serve where possible, including with daytime patrols.

In 2021 we continue to prayerfully find ways to support our city, both in the streets, schools and wider community.
