On Friday night the first 41 street pastors for the city of Coleraine in Northern Ireland were commissioned, along with eight volunteers who will pray for the team and the people they meet during patrols.
In every commissioning service, volunteers are asked to affirm their commitment to serving their neighbourhood as street pastors by responding to the following questions:
Do you acknowledge God’s call on your life to serve Him as a street pastor here in Coleraine?
Do you seek with God’s help to demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ in word and deed on the streets of Coleraine?
Along with other agencies who work together for the safety of Coleraine, we give thanks for the answer that the new recruits gave – ‘We do‘.
