We need you!

We are recruiting more lovely Street Pastor and Prayer Pastor volunteers to join our amazing team!

A Street Pastor is someone who is…

  • a Christian and is part of a local church;
  • concerned for society and their local community;
  • willing to engage with people, whatever their perspective on life and wherever they hang out;
  • happy to work in a team and in collaboration with other agencies and projects, both statutory and voluntary.

Street pastors are trained volunteers from local churches who care about their community. They patrol in teams of men and women, usually from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. on a Thursday, Friday and Saturday night, to care for, listen to and help people who are out on the streets.

A Prayer Pastor is some who is…

  • a Christian and is part of a local church;
  • concerned for society and their local community;
  • committed to praying for the Street Pastors and for incidents that arise on the streets whilst they are on patrol

Prayer is at the heart of what Street Pastors do. When you meet a Street Pastor, whatever they are doing or however they are helping, they are part of a bigger team that is praying for your town right at that moment.

Prayer Pastors gather at the Street Pastors base and are in touch with the team that is on the street through mobile phones. They also have a radio that connects them to CCTV operators. Prayer Pastors work in two shifts to cover the time the Street Pastors are out, but we desperately need volunteers for the 1am to 4am slots.

If you live in Tunbridge Wells or the surrounding areas and have a heart for outreach or prayer, we’d love to hear from you. Get in touch via email tunbridgewells@streetpastors.org.uk to find out how you can be involved.
