Stories from the Street Pastors
Perhaps we think of the "mission field" as somewhere far away. Probably hot, definitely scary. But our mission field can be the streets we walk every day! Here the Street Pastors share the impact they have had on their mission field.
"As Street Pastors we are accustomed to not knowing the impact our conversations and assistance have on those we meet. Occasionally someone will seek us out and let us know how we have helped them. A young man approached the Street Pastors and thanked them, saying that what had been said to him by a Street Pastor stopped him from going home to commit suicide, which is what he had been planning to do."
“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
"As Street Pastors we are the “Church in action on the streets” and as such when those we meet need the “church” they come to find us. A young woman asked us to pray with her because she remembered we had helped her six years earlier when she had been drunk. On another evening, after chatting with a group of young men, one stayed behind to ask for prayer as his mum had cancer."
