What does a Street Pastor do?

A Street Pastor is someone from the Christian community who is willing to care, listen and help, particularly young people who have found themselves disenfranchised and/or marginalised from society. A Street Pastor is willing to engage people where they are, in terms of their thinking (their perspective on life) and location (where they hang out, be it on the streets, in the pubs and clubs or at parties).

The Street Pastor is there to get to know people in the community and to build relationships in order to find out their needs and what can be done to help. Street Pastors must gain the credibility of the community, so that the community knows that the Church has come to them.

A Street Pastor’s main role is to make themselves available to care, listen, support and help vulnerable people especially young individuals to move into positive endeavours. They should be able to commit to working one Friday night a month between 10 pm until 3.00 am.

Street Pastors come from right across the Christian Community and can be anyone who:

Has been committed to a  Christian church for more than a year

  • Has obtained a positive reference from their Church Leader/Minister
  • Has undergone a DBS (CRB) check
  • Has completed a 12-session Street Pastor’s training course
  • Is 18 years or over (no upper age limit)
