Leeds Street Pastors
‘But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.’2 Corinthians 4:7
We were reminded of 2 Corinthians 4:7 during a prayer time at the start of 2017 and are now aware of how the Lord has kept us going, patrolling the streets of Chapeltown and Harehills, despite more than our fair share of illness and problems.
Over the last ten years we have patrolled on two Saturday evenings each month trying to show God’s love to those we meet, ‘listening, caring and helping’ as our motto says. We are the church on the street, going into parks, shops, cafes and pubs demonstrating the Gospel. One policeman once described us ‘a useful tool in his toolbox’. Our greatest need is for more volunteers, especially men. Comprehensive training is given and we are supported by Prayer Pastors who pray when we are out—we need more of these too! Please pray that we can expand our operation.
