Community ProjectsTACT are praying for God's blessing on our communities. Jesus had compassion on people, seeing many as harassed and scattered. Today His love and care are shown through His people in practical, social and spiritual ways. TACT supports and provides spiritual care for all the activities below, though each one is set up under its own scheme.

WORKING WITH YOU
Street Pastors and Prayer Pastors are Christians drawn from a cross-section of local churches with a concern for their local community. They seek to provide a reassuring presence by patrolling and praying for the streets of their town late at night.
School Pastors - at present we have 10 School Pastors and 10 Prayer Pastors who have completed the training.
Catalyst is an inter-denominational trust set up and supported by TACT, by employing a worker who works with young people in and out of schools and who also acts as a catalyst in setting activities up, e.g. School Pastors and Youth Mentoring.
