Street pastors

Prayer Pastors


Several St Augustine's parishioners are Prayer Pastors. We pray with fellow Christians from 23 Churches around Tunbridge Wells. Although we come from different denominations the prayer flows and time passes quickly. We ask God to send His Spirit to guide us and He does. We put the spiritual armour St Paul writes about in Ephesians 6.10-17 on ourselves and on the Street Pastors. We pray they will be led to the places God wants them to go, they will meet the people He wants them to meet. We pray for the customers, the bar staff and the people they come in contact, and when the Street Pastors phone we pray for the particular situations and the individuals they are with.

We read the Word of God in the Bible, sing His praises in hymns. We get to know each other and rejoice we are praying together. We take part in a spiritual battle but we know as it says in 2 Chronicles 20 that the battle is not ours but God's. We see God do amazing and beautiful things.

We have a rota and pray once a month on a Friday or Saturday night in a shifts from 10.00pm -1.00am or 1.00 - 4.00am. More Prayer Pastors are needed so that the Street Pastors can go out more often. They only go when they are backed by prayer.

If you are thinking of joining the team you are welcome to come for a taster shift.

For more information talk to any of our Prayer Pastors, details available from the church office.
