Donate to Glasgow Street Pastors (SCIO)
WE ARE RECRUITING!
The AGM underlined our commitment to Glasgow Street Pastors being Fit for the Future. It is difficult to predict what the city centre will look like, particularly in the evenings and through the night at weekends, but one thing is sure, with God’s help, Glasgow Street Pastors will be ready to serve as we have been doing for the last eleven years. Our Management Team policy is that following the lifting of current restrictions, whenever that might be, and a return to Level 3, we can move to reinstate day time patrols, which we are all looking forward to as a first step back on the streets again.
We also had the joy at our AGM of welcoming the Street Pastors and Prayer Pastors of the West End SP initiative as they became part of Glasgow Street Pastors. We believe this to be a wonderful opportunity to advance the work of God’s Kingdom throughout the city, drawing on the strengths, experience and unity of purpose we share as we support and encourage one another.
‘Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the prize for which God, through Christ Jesus is calling us.’

Volunteer with Glasgow Street Pastors
The Spring Training Programme for new volunteers will commence on Friday 28th February 2020. Being involved with Glasgow Street Pastors on the streets, in the Safe Zone or as a Prayer Pastor is a way in which to demonstrate the love of God through very practicle acts of service, care and compassion. Our teams of volunteers go out in Jesus name to 'listen, care and help' in whatever ways they can. Why not join us and be a light in the heart of the city as we serve those who use the night time economy. Hit the 'I want to volunteer' button to start the journey!
GSP News 13th September 2019
Tonight, we have a Quality Assurance visit by a team from Ascension Trust Scotland. This will be an opportunity to reflect on what is positive about GSP and take steps to increase the effectiveness of this special ministry. Our new trainees will be doing sessions tomorrow on Cultural Awareness, Safeguarding and First Aid training and our co-ordinator will be attending a course on Roles and Responsibilities in Perth at the same time. During the week 37 Street Pastors attended safeTALK training delivered by Stewart Moore from Social Work Services in his own unique and incredibly helpful style. GSP is committed to ‘up-skilling’ in order to meet the changing challenges faced on the streets and in the Safe Zone.
Please pray for many “God appointed meetings’ this weekend as we go out once again to ‘be the Gospel’.
