Mission Highlight

Street Pastors was pioneered in 2003 in the UK in 2003 by Les Isaac.

On that first night, 18 volunteers took to the streets of Brixton, London, and since then this initiative has grown to encompass a network of volunteers who engage with people on the streets to care for them, listen to them and help them.
