The Street Pastors initiative has grown dramatically since its birth in London 12 years ago, when the Church began to establish new forms of contact with hard-to-reach communities of young or disenfranchised people in urban centres.
Street pastors in Bexhill, Sussex, have completed a Response Pastors training day and will form the first Response Pastors team outside of London – Bexhill Response Pastors. The volunteers have received their uniforms and certificates and were commissioned as Response Pastors at a service last week.
Many new Street Pastors volunteers started training back in February, so by May many of them will have reached the stage at which they can be ‘commissioned’ – made ready to be an official street pastor.
