Description

ur mission statement is “To show the love of Jesus in the city at night, by caring for, listening to and helping the people we meet.”

Stirling is known as “Scotland’s Heart” due to its physical location and historical significance in the past. It is reported that 70% of Scotland’s population lives within one hour of the city and this creates a diverse people group, culture, tourism trade and experience. Stirling Street Pastors want to see “Scotland’s Heart” gain an understanding of God’s Heart for the city and its people. As Christian volunteers we are motivated by the Bible and our faith to try to both proactively and reactively seek the welfare of our city – putting the emphasis firmly on the individual in need at the time. Street Pastors is not about preaching, judging or telling people how to live their lives. Instead, we freely hand out personal safety equipment, give emotional care and physical help to hundreds of people using the city centre every month.
