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

We've been closed since April 2020 due to the pandemic, with a couple of trial openings in December 2020 before heading back into lockdown.

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 9pm to 1am and are looking forward to having the complimentary safe space to run alongside.  As the clubs and pubs are now opening till about 3am, we expect to extend the hours again soon.
On the night you can contact us on: 07906 954 970 (more details here)
