"Street Pastors is about Christians rolling up their sleeves and getting involved in practically responding to the problems of crime and safety. They are like beacons on our streets and I want to see them shining brightly in every constituency" David Burrowes MP

Street Pastors is a Church response to urban problems, engaging with people on the streets to care, listen and dialogue. It was pioneered in London in January 2003 by Rev Les Isaac OBE, Director of the Ascension Trust, and has seen some remarkable results, including drops in crime in areas where teams have been working. There are now some 9000 trained volunteers in around 250 teams across the United Kingdom.

Each Street Pastors project is set up by the Ascension Trust and run by a local coordinator with support from the trust, local churches and community groups, in partnership with Police, Council and other statutory agencies.

Street Pastors gets to know people in their community, finding out their needs and discovering what can be done to help. A presence of Street Pastors lets people know that the Church is there for them in a practical way. The role is not about preaching, but one of listening, caring and helping.

To be a Street Pastor you need to be over 18 (no upper age limit), a church member and able to commit to the training programme. Each Street Pastor team consists of at least three groups of four, each of which will work a minimum of one night a month, usually from 10pm to around 4am.
