We thought Tim’s last Street Pastor night patrol in these parts was going to be a quiet one when we didn’t encounter a soul walking up through Balham. But once we got to Clapham High Street it was a different story, and we even found ourselves giving out bottles of water and flipflops – something we often don’t get to do!

There was more hubbub at McDonald’s in Balham at the end of the patrol when a group of drunk people started being loud and threatening to everyone, but we stood back, alerted the police and prayed, and all seemed to disperse … eventually.
