Street Pastors is a nation-wide initiative of the Ascension Trust, and a partnership between the Church in Chesterfield, together with the local council, police and other statutory agencies.
Street Pastors is a Christian response to the issues of crime, disorder and personal vulnerability of those who people the night-time economy of Chesterfield; it is a movement to transform the local community one act of kindness at a time.
With training, Street Pastors are there to care, listen and engage with those they meet, and to support those who need their help without judgement.
St John’s is a lead-church in this significant ministry to the people of Chesterfield; if you would like to know more or would like to volunteer for this ministry, contact the church office and they will point you to the coordinator here at St John’s.
