 The Street Pastors initiative is a national, interdenominational Christian response to today’s social problems. Our team is made up of Christian volunteers from different churches and church traditions across Leicestershire. We walk around the city centre every Saturday night and the first and last Friday night of each month to be available to people. We are here to listen, care and help – to show God’s love and what Christianity is about in practical ways.

Churches Together in Leicester City Centre launched Leicester Street Pastors in 2005 and there are now a number of groups set up across Leicestershire. In April 2015 we had a big 10th Anniversary Celebration at Leicester Cathedral. This was attended by several members of Leicestershire Police, the City Council and representatives from the local night-time economy who really appreciate what we do. The guest speaker was Revd Les Isaacs who founded Street Pastors.

Over the last ten years we have become an established part of the weekend night life of the city centre. We have very good relationships with the local police, the city council, local taxi firms and the clubs and bars in the city centre (Click on our videos section to see Chief Constable Simon Cole talk about his appreciation of what we do). Also, many of the young people we meet in town know that they can approach us for a chat, to ask questions to, and to help them out in whatever practical ways we can.

We thank you for looking us up and we hope that you find our website informative. Please click on the above links to find out more about us. If you do see us out and about in the city centre, feel free to come over and say ‘Hi’!  We believe it’s a privilege to meet and serve our local community.
