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.

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