Street Pastors Swindon is an initiative of the local churches, working together with the Police and the Local Council. It is part of a national initiative run by a charity called the Ascension Trust.
The idea is simple: Street Pastors is a ministry to those in the pubs and clubs of our town, working to be a prayerful listening and caring presence of Christians from local churches between 10pm and 4am and weekends. We're not there to preach at people, simply to care, to listen and to help: to show the love of Jesus in practical ways.
Street Pastors nationally was launched in Lambeth in 2003 and is now in hundreds of towns and cities across the UK. From the very start it has been endorsed by the Home Office.
Street Pastors Swindon launched in September 2007 and has given thousands of hours of service to the night-time economy of our town. It is quite simply - the church in action on the streets.
