What is a Street Pastor?

Romford SP7Street 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 Friday and Saturday night, to care for, listen to and help people who are out on the streets.

 

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.
