The work of Street Pastors – which is of course a national, and indeed international movement – is hugely well respected and supported by local authorities, businesses and the police, and this is very much the case in Bristol.
Street Pastors in Bristol need to raise awareness across the church community. There’s an urgent need for more volunteers. Martin Gunther, who heads up Bristol Street Pastors noted that there are currently around 20 or so volunteers signed up in Bristol, compared to over 100 in Glasgow.
Please share this across your congregations. To help you in this task we’ve produced a short extract from a recent Zoom call which draws some of the highlights together – just 4.5 minutes long. Here’s the link: https://youtu.be/aow-8058hQ4
Martin, and others from the team, would love to be able to come and share more about Street Pastors.
Do get back to him if you can, and let’s both encourage the team and also add significantly to the volunteer cohort.
