St Helens Street Pastors first ever commissioning service went really well with great support from the local Urban Trinity and Ascension Trust rep Tony Winter.

Area Commander Louise Harrison and Town Centre Ward Councillor Lisa Preston both spoke about their support for the project and how they hope that it will support the local community and seven trained volunteers received their caps and certificates confirming their status as fully commissioned Street Pastors.

The service was led by Chair Howard Leatherbarrow and Trustee Philip Fell gave the address speaking of his pleasure at seeing Street Pastors going live in St Helens after the years of discussions and work that have gone in to setting up this charitable initiative in our town.

The St Helens Street Pastors even adopted their own anthem, with one of the pastors introducing the rest of the team to Chris Rice’ worship song, Go light your world, definitely what Street Pastors are hoping to achieve wherever they are based.
