From: Maidstone Street Pastors
"Throughout this period of lock-down, we have been assisting with some other duties. MBC asked us to assist when the town re-opened its shops to be able to speak to people who had been isolated for a number of weeks, similarly they asked us to attend when the market opened up a couple of months ago. We have been at the market every Saturday and have enjoyed some great conversations with people that were inquisitive as to who we are and what we do!
Until the night clubs start to re-open, we have adjusted our rotas to 9.00pm - 12.00pm.
Maidstone Street Pastors would like to ask for your help.
It was only a couple of years ago that we were blessed with approximately 30 Street Pastor volunteers and could have two teams out every Saturday. The sad situation we are in today, is that we only have 10 Street Pastors with 3 more going through training.
We are blessed that we have great support from the Police, Maidstone Borough Council, emergency services etc. but we need support from Maidstone's Churches if this ministry is to continue.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. Email link
Thank you for your help.
Regards and blessings
Maidstone Street Pastor Coordinator"
