Town Pastors.


Hartlepool Town Pastors (HTP) is a charitable volunteer initiative which started in May 2011 and follows the Christian Nightlife Initiatives "Street angels" model now in use in over 250 other towns and cities across the UK.

Volunteers do not have to profess any faith, but must be prepared to deal with people in a totally non-discriminatory way.  We have already won three awards for the service provided.

HTP aim to:

  • make a contribution to the safety and wellbeing of fellow citizens
  • offer care, compassion and relevant practical and spiritual help where appropriate to members of the public
  • help those who find themselves marginalised and vulnerable
  • signpost services that are available from other organisations and help individuals access those services

HTP operates on Saturday nights in the Victoria Road/Church Street area.
