One of our current team members comments on the impact of City Pastors’ ministry:

“Reuniting girls with parents after a concert, giving directions, waiting with someone for a taxi, radio-ing Police camera when someone becomes vulnerable is what we do as City Pastors. A grateful person once asked why we had helped them, to which we replied, ‘Because God cares’, and that’s why we joined the project, working a night or so every month in Birmingham’s vibrant entertainment district, helping people to have a good night.”
