Glasgow Street Pastors

Glasgow Street Pastors is a volunteer-based initiative with a mandate to be a visible Christian influence in the city of Glasgow.

Teams of Street Pastors walk the streets of Glasgow every weekend demonstrating compassionate care in the heart of the city. We operate a Safe Zone at St George’s Tron church every Saturday night, on Friday’s during the festive period and at other busy times in the city centre. The aim of all our activity is to help, to care and to listen. We work in partnership with local churches, Glasgow City Council, and Police Scotland, forming what is known as the Urban Trinity.

GSP is also part of a larger international movement of Street Pastors.
