Our next St Michael’s Community Coffee morning is on Wednesday, October 9th at 10.30am. We will be raising funds for Plymouth Street Pastors
Street Pastors is an interdenominational network of Christian charities operating across the UK and worldwide. It is a Church response to urban problems, engaging with people on the streets to care, listen and dialogue.
Individual street pastors are Christian adults with a concern for their community, who undergo 12 days of training in order to voluntarily patrol the streets of towns and cities at night, helping and caring for people in practical ways.
Street Pastors in Plymouth and Torpoint After a launch meeting in December 2007, attended by representatives of the churches, the Police and the Council, just under 50 people commenced training to become Plymouth Street Pastors in January 2008. Four months later the course was completed and on 23rd May, 48 newly commissioned Street Pastors began their patrols in the Mutley and Greenbank areas. Today those patrols have extended to include Union St, the City Centre, the Barbican, Bretonside, Whitleigh, Estover, Leigham, Torpoint and Plymstock.
Thank you to everyone who supported our coffee morning in September – we raised £61 for the work of Macmillan Nurses … a great result!
