WELCOME TO THE PRESTON & SOUTH RIBBLE STREET PASTORS WEBSITE!HERE YOU WILL FIND INFORMATION ABOUT OUR PATROLS, OUR FUND RAISING AND OUR TEAMS.
We are part of a national project first pioneered in 2003, and Street Pastors continues to grow throughout the UK and across the world. Preston & South Ribble Street Pastors started patrolling in 2008.
Street Pastors are trained volunteers from local churches and we care about our community.
We patrol from 8.00pm to midnight on Friday nights in the St Matthew’s / New Hall Lane area of Preston. We spend time with young people on the estates; call into the shops, takeaways, pubs and clubs to chat with local people. All the time looking out for anyone in need.
On Saturday nights we patrol from 10.30 pm to 3.00am in Preston City Centre. We ensure the homeless are looked after and know where to go to find help; and we spend time with young people enjoying a night out in the pubs & clubs – helping everyone to stay safe.
We are there to care for, listen to and help people who are out on the streets.
We are led by our Management Team and our local Coordinator and we also have support from local churches and community groups in partnership with the police, local council and other statutory agencies.
In June 2018 we won the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service – which is a great accolade for all our volunteers who give so much of their time, energy and compassion to serve the people of Preston.

It's been a busy 2021/22 as we got back on our feet (literally!), and we've been as busy as ever. A big thanks to all our supporters in churches, charities and as individuals who give generously. You keep us in flip-flops, uniforms, updated training and working...
We are recruiting and interviewing applicants for our new intake of Street Pastors! It's not too late if you feel a calling to join us. Contact us if you would like to come along as an observer one evening to see if it is for you.
Help keep us on the streets of Preston in 2022! You can donate through the QR code or by this link. Thank you so much for your support!
