Street Pastors

Street Pastors is a national initiative which seeks to make the streets safer at night by diffusing conflict situations which are often fuelled by alcohol.

In Stalybridge, members of local churches make themselves available around the town from 10pm on Saturday nights till 3am on Sunday morning! They offer help and support to vulnerable people who are often worse for wear as well as being  cheerful and reassuring presence.

The Stalybridge team started in July 2010 and currently has 18 active volunteers who have all undertaken extensive training and are drawn from several churches in the town and beyond. The team have had considerable success in changing the atmosphere in the town at night, preventing several serious incidents and caring for many vulnerable people.
