During the month of March our teams on the streets and in the Safe Zone assisted over 150 people who found themselves in a state of vulnerability while using the city centre on a Friday and Saturday night. What a blessing therefore that we had 85 Street Pastors patrolling in our teams during March and 29 providing help and support to the vulnerable in the Safe Zone. Our presence in the Central Station also provided assistance to over 20 people. We are blessed in GSP with an amazing team of volunteers, which is also recognised by the general public, who consistently show their appreciation for the work we do when they meet us on duty. Full details of the statistics for the month can be found on in our documents page.

With all the experience we have in our teams, we still never lose sight of the fact that without the help of the Holy Spirit and the prayer backing we receive, we would find ourselves struggling to see positive outcomes for some of the people we encounter. Arranging transport and making contact with family and friends can be problematic. Supporting people with suicidal thoughts and other mental health issues, dealing with those who have used mind altering substances, all of this can stretch SPs to the limit. Without God, circumstances can seem like mountains but with God ‘all things are possible’.

Oh no, You never let go
Through the calm and through the storm
Oh no, You never let go
In every high and every low
Oh no, You never let go
Lord, You never let go of me

Our training programme concluded on Saturday with great sessions on Prayer and Homelessness. Special thanks to Willie Henry (Prayer Pastor Co-ordinator) and David Harper from Glasgow City Mission for his experience, passion and wisdom. Twelve new SPs are now integrated into our existing teams and four in the Safe Zone.
