Street PastorsMary Bartholomew, via The Good Book Stall
The Prologue: Diary of an anonymous Street Pastor, gives a very fair description of what being a street pastor is all about and sets the scene for the rest of the book.
Les Isaac tells how the idea evolved into reality and the difficulties encountered on the way. Initially started in Brixton as a project to make the night time streets safer for everyone, the concept has grown beyond all expectations and has become the main task of the Ascension Trust. (See www.streetpastors.co.uk )
The problem of gun and knife crime, binge drinking, gang culture, loneliness, violence and fear has spread far beyond Brixton into many towns and cities throughout our land. Street Pastors is initiated by Christians but is a partnership between local government, police and churches. ‘Street Pastors’ is a registered trademark and this enables Ascension Trust to keep a firm hold on each group that is set up, making sure that they adhere to a common policy while giving them all the help and support they need. Christians do not flaunt their faith, but minister with Christian love and understanding and only talk about their faith or pray with people when invited to do so. This makes working with other secular agencies possible and acceptable to the authorities.
Several thousand Christians are now involved throughout our land and many people have been helped and potential violent incidents defused because of their presence. I beg you to read this book and learn more about what is going on largely unseen and unrecognised by those of us who do not go onto the streets at night.
