Street Pastors (North Lincs) is an initiative of the local churches, working together with the Police, local pubs and clubs and the Local Authority in Scunthorpe. It is part of a national initiative run by the Ascension Trust.
Street Pastors is a ministry to those in the pubs and clubs or out and about in the town between 10pm and 4am on Saturdays and key holiday dates.. They are working to be a prayerful listening and caring presence of Christians from local churches. They'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 (North Lincs) launched in May 2009 and has given many hours of service to the night-time economy of the town. It is quite simply - the church in action on the streets.
Still going strong beginning of 2017
