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

    street crime rate.

    be used as weapons in fights or trodden on by
    bare feet!
