sv podcast – Falkirk Street Pastors

Welcome to this special smallVOICE feature about the great work of Street Pastors in Falkirk in central Scotland. Our roving reporter, Margaret, spoke to volunteers John, Nikki and Joanne, just a few days before Christmas.

These volunteers aren’t just for Christmas though – they are out in the city centre every weekend of the year, helping people late at night. A huge variety of needs – and, as you’ll hear, it’s amazing what they have to carry in their kit bag ….

Falkirk Street Pastors were commissioned in 2010. We are a dedicated group of Christians committed to patrolling the town centre on a Saturday night from about 10pm until 3.30am (ish) on the Sunday. (During Easter, Christmas and New Year we patrol on a Friday and Saturday).
OUR AIM: Listen, Care and Help. We want to bring peace and a Christian presence to the night life in our community by building relationships and serving where we can.
OUR VALUES: Work in partnership with police, council, taxi marshalls, door stewards and managers, Red Cross and Addiction services to ensure that ‘Falkirk Delivers’ the best.
