Tony Crow joined us on Thursday 7 September to tell how the Street Pastors help make sure that West End revellers on Friday and Saturday nights come to no harm.
Might you or a friend or relative want to join them as a Street Pastor or Prayer Pastor?

West End Street pastors are trained volunteers from churches across the West End of Glasgow.
They are usually on patrol from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Friday or Saturday nights, from Kelvinbridge to Partick train station, although they have a particular focus on Byres Road and Ashton Lane.
They provide a listening ear, protect vulnerable people from harm, provide first aid and flipflops, calm down situations and offer support where we can.
The Pastors are supported by local churches, work in partnership with Police Scotland and Community Safety Glasgow, and work alongside their colleagues in Glasgow City Centre Street Pastors.
