What are Town Pastors?

Town Pastors, working in pairs, wearing bright distinctive jackets and headgear, are Christian volunteers from local churches who are out in the town centre of Felixstowe most Saturday nights being a positive influence on the streets and providing help and support to vulnerable people.

In addition there is the prayer team: some pray at the base in town and others pray at home.
