Street Pastors Initiative

Street Pastors is an initiative spearheaded by Ascension Trust in 2003 and is an interdenominational Christian response to community issues. We engage with people on the streets and in day and night-time venues to care, listen, dialogue and offer practical help. Street Pastors have a strong partnership foundation with local service providers, charities, local police and the borough council.

The project was launched in Barking & Dagenham in April 2008 with Christians volunteering from a number of churches throughout the borough giving their time to making a difference in our community.

Street Pastors Barking and Dagenham are an independent charity and part of the UK Street Pastors Initiative For more information contact us here.
