During normal times, Cambridge Street Pastors run 'NightLite' a drop-in, safe-space in the centre of Cambridge every Saturday night from 10:00 pm - 04:00 am.

Downing Place URC (formerly St Columba's, opposite John Lewis and next to Revolution) have now fully refurbished and we're looking forward to re-starting our safe space in a bespoke area within the church facing Downing Street from the first weekend in September.  Currently our Street Pastor patrols are out every Saturday 10pm to 3am and are looking forward to having the complimentary safe space to run alongside.  We're starting on the last Saturday of the month, with dates 30th October (Halloween), 27th November, possibly 18th December and Friday 31st December (New Year's Eve).
On the night you can contact us on: 07906 954 970 (more details here)
