Street Pastors is an inter-denominational 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, 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 over 100 teams around the United Kingdom.
Each city project is set up by Ascension Trust and run by a local coordinator with support from Ascension Trust and local churches and community groups, in partnership with Police, Council and other statutory agencies.
Our Church has been actively involved with Street Pastors in Hastings with a good number of our members taking part. We are delighted that plans are well advanced for Street Pastor’s to come to Pebsham, Sidley & Bexhill. If you would like to know more please contact Steve Leabon on 07551 347103.
