Derby City Mission
Street Pastors

What is a Street Pastor? 
Street Pastors are trained volunteers from local churches who care about their community. They patrol in teams of men and women, usually from 10pm to 4am on a Friday or Saturday night, to care for, listen to and help people who are out on the streets. 

A Street Pastor is someone who is: 
* a Christian and is part of a local church
* concerned for society and their local community
* willing to engage with people, whatever their perspective on life & wherever they hang out
* happy to work in a team and in collaboration with other agencies and projects, both statutory and voluntary
* over 18, and agrees to a DBS check, and attend a full training programme

Derby City Mission provides the valuable and highly commended Street Pastors service to the city. Their commitment, dedication, quality of work and reputation are exceptionally high. They have proved to be a much valued service, appreciated by all those in need in the early hours with no-one to turn to for assistance.

I have been out with the street pastors for 3 nights and I am suprised by how much time and energy they put into helping vulnerable people on nights out in the city centre...I enjoy the way the pastors preach through their actions rather than words - it sends a stronger message of giving peace and togetherness to a large group of mostly young people. Aimee Hill - Photography Student
