Street Pastors is an inter-denominational Church response to urban problems, engaging with people on the streets to care, listen and dialogue. It was pioneered in London in January 2003 by Rev Les Isaac, Director of the Ascension Trust, and has seen some remarkable results, including significant reductions in crime in areas where teams have been working.
Southwark Street Pastors is overseen by the board of Southwark For Jesus and runs in partnership with Ascension Trust, the police, Southwark council and other statutory agencies.
