Would you volunteer to walk the streets of your town or city late on a Saturday night? This is what Street Pastors do, showing compassionate care and concern to everyone they meet.
Founded in 2003 to respond to critical social issues, more than 12,000 volunteers have now been trained to serve as Street Pastors, not only on the streets but in many other public spheres as well. Whether offering a listening ear to a vulnerable clubber, mentoring a troubled teen or responding to a national emergency, Street Pastors are making a significant difference in communities across the UK and beyond.
This book, with incredible and in some cases life-saving stories, celebrates their work, which has been credited with saving police and NHS time and money, reducing crime and improving neighbourhoods, and dispels the myth that the Church is not relevant today.
