The Street Pastor Training Programme

The training programme is designed to fully equip new Street Pastors to respond to the needs of all the people with whom they engage on the streets.

Training takes place at regular intervals to update current street pastors and train new recruits as needed.

Our training will provide an awareness of today’s social problems including:

  • Roles and responsibilities of a Street Pastor
  • Listening skills
  • Working with the Police
  • Alcohol and drug awareness
  • Street safety
  • Understanding youth culture
  • Working with social services
  • Understanding mental health issues
  • Additional training that may be suitable

After a core element of the training is completed, trainees join experienced Street Pastors on patrol while they continue their training.

It is necessary for trained Street Pastors to update regularly on certain elements of training.


Street Pastor volunteers are expected to successfully complete the training course. Sessions missed through necessity should be picked up in the next available training course.
