THE man who started the internationally successful Street Pastors movement is to visit Levenmouth on his first ever Scottish tour.
The Rev Les Isaac OBE is travelling north to mark the fifth anniversary of the street-based aid organisation in Scotland and its 10th anniversary worldwide.
Perhaps best known for the number of flip-flops they distribute to barefoot revellers, street pastors have become a welcome addition to the country’s night-time profile.
They administer caring, non-discriminatory assistance and Christian understanding wherever and whenever required.
The Levenmouth project was launched in 2010 and has 10 street pastors working between 11 p.m. and 3 a.m. on Saturday nights.
Rev. Isaac will visit Fife on May 30 and attend a joint evening event in NewCraigs Evangelical Church, Kirkcaldy, where he will meet street pastors from Levenmouth, Kirkcaldy and Dunfermline.
He’ll also be treated to a taste of Kingdom culture, with traditional Scottish hospitality, local food and drinks, and the rare treat of some Scottish music.
Mr Isaac said he hoped his visits would encourage and re-enthuse the growing body of street pastors in Scotland, while a Fife spokesman said: “It is an honour to share an evening with a man of such great passion, commitment and vision to help our communities become better places.”
