Some of our members volunteer with Chelmsford Street Pastors.
The Street Pastors scheme is a Church response to urban problems, engaging with people on the streets to care, listen and dialogue. It was pioneered in London in 2003 by Rev Les Isaac, Director of the Ascension Trust, and has seen some remarkable results, including dramatic drops in crime in areas where teams have been working.
Each city project is set up by Ascension Trust and run by a local co-ordinator with support from Ascension Trust as well as local churches and community groups, in partnership with Police, Council and other statutory agencies.
