Since its inception in Ipswich in June 2006, Town Pastors has grown considerably and schemes are now running in a number of other towns in Suffolk.
Feedback from volunteers:
"I was very anxious before going out for the first time, but within minutes I knew it was going to be so rewarding and worthwhile. I loved it; people were so receptive and we were able to defuse several situations (with God on our side!) that could have got nasty and most likely would have ended in arrests. Can’t wait for my next shift!”
Tracey Town Pastor (Ipswich)
“How could I ever have thought that I would feel so tired and find it tough going!!. A wonderful action packed, prayer packed night -- overwhelming to see God at work at ground level in such a tangible way. My whole Church had to hear about it on Sunday morning, but I was so excited I talked too fast!!”
Janet Prayer Team member (Felixstowe)
“I really felt the presence of God in our interactions on the street (not sure how the others felt. ... by 4am I was not coherent enough to explain!)”
Louise Town Pastor (Felixstowe)
"We were asked three times in one night if our caps were available to purchase or for sale on eBay. Everyone was fascinated to know the significance of the 'fish' logo - not merely a fashion statement but the ageless street symbol of Christians!"
Steve Town Pastor (Ipswich)
