DEREHAM

Town Pastors patrolling in the town

WHO WE ARE


Dereham Town Pastors was launched in 2016 as a voluntary, independent, inter-denominational church initiative to bring a safe and welcoming presence on the streets of Dereham


Dereham Town Pastors are Christian volunteers drawn from various local churches and denominations in Dereham and the surrounding villages.  They aim to serve people, regardless of their faith or background, by going out on the streets to care, to listen, to show concern and wherever possible, to offer help in a non-judgemental and unconditional way.


We have small charity status and are run by a management committee drawn from various Dereham churches, Dereham Town Pastors are affiliated to Town Pastors in Suffolk who advise, support and help with the training required to become a Town Pastor.

 

 Dereham Town Pastors work with the support of Dereham Town Council, the police and the emergency services to make Dereham a safer place.


 




The Town Pastors are pleased to report that they are now members of 'MOMENTUM NORFOLK' A link to the Momentum web site can be found on the Other Links page of this site.

A PRAYER


Go forth into the world in peace;

Be of good courage;

Hold fast that which is good;

Render to no one evil for evil;

Strengthen the faint hearted;

Support the weak;

Help the afflicted;

Give honour to all;

Love and serve the Lord,

Rejoicing in the power of the Holy Spirit.

WE CARE FOR OUR YOUNG PEOPLE

If YOU do as well why not get involved?
