A Brief History of Street Pastors

What is a Street Pastors Initiative?

Street Pastors is an inter-denominational Church response to urban problems, engaging with people on the streets to care, listen and dialogue.

Pioneered in London in January 2003 by Rev Les Isaac, Director of the Ascension Trust, and has seen some remarkable results, including drops in crime in areas where teams have been working.

“There are many young people who feel excluded by society. Street Pastors takes practical hope to the pavement for these individuals.”

Joel Edwards

Director, Micah Challenge International

The Impact of Street Pastors

What Positive Difference are the Street Pastors making in the South West?



What difference do we make26 l.jpg
What Difference do we Make?

Take some of the pressure off the Emergency Services. We have time they don’t have.

Street Pastor Initiatives lead to a fall in street crime rate.

The town becomes a safer place

Glasses or bottles from the street so they cannot be used as weapons in fights or trodden on by bare feet!

We can phone home for help
