Friday and Saturday nights
Street Pastors is an initiative of Ascension Trust and was pioneered in London in 2003. On that first night, 18 volunteers took to the streets of Brixton – 15 women and 3 men. There are now over 11,000 trained street pastors, and they play an active part in 270 towns and cities around the UK.
Lewisham Street Pastors are fully trained volunteers from local churches who care about our community. For more than ten years they have been patrolling the streets of Lewisham on Friday or Saturday nights to care for, listen to and help local people. School pastors has also been recently launched.
