Pioneered in London in 2003 by Rev Les Isaac, Street Pastors is an inter-denominational church response to urban problems, engaging with people on the streets to care, listen and dialogue. There are now 9,000 trained volunteers in around 250 teams around the United Kingdom. This handy, pocket-sized, Street Pastors-branded NIV Bible with sixteen colour pages at the beginning explains the work of the organisation, what the Bible is and how to start reading. It is designed especially for Street Pastors to give out on patrol and has space in the front for Street Pastors to fill in local details, as well as a short Bible study at the back. It is also available in a ten copy pack.
