Welcome to the home page for Aldershot's Town Centre Pastoral Team.

The Town Centre Pastoral Team is comprised of Christians from most of the churches in the Aldershot area.  Primarily it is a night-time outreach with a presence in the town centre every Friday and Saturday night through the year, as well as on a few other occasions.  We have a stall with lollies, Mars bars, flip-flops, bottles of water, hot drinks, spikeys, space blankets as well as helpful literature.  There are also teams out in day times, primarily Thursdays, which is market day, both with a table in the Wellington Centre and patrols of ones and twos.

It is a distinctively Christian ministry aiming to listen, encourage, help, bless and pray for any and all we may meet in a sensitive way.  We meet and engage with several thousand people every year, many of whom open up about significantly deep and painful issues in their lives which we can then pray for, offer practical, emotional and spiritual help as well as signpost to other specialist organisations.

The team, as it now is, was started on 1st May 2008, but has its roots in a monthly church outreach from one of the local churches which started three years previously.  The Police have noticed how, when the teams are out, the crime and incident rates drop significantly!
