Swindon Street Pastors
Street Pastors are a group of Christian volunteers from various churches across Swindon. Working independently, but with the full support of the Local Authority and the Police, and working closely with security and door staff of the pubs and clubs, we patrol the Town Centre on Friday and Saturday nights between 10pm and 4am.
We are not there to preach, but to show the love of the Lord Jesus, in a practical way.
Street Pastors are there to offer a prayerful presence, a listening ear and simple, practical help. This can be anything from:
- a warm drink for a homeless person,
- a pair of flip-flops for an unsteady girl who can no longer walk in her stilettos,
- a friendly ear or a shoulder to cry on,
- defusing a potentially violent situation,
- assisting a vulnerable person to get home, or
- a space blanket for a very cold clubber
