We are currently participating in area wide training courses run over a number of weekends and including trainee street pastors from a number of different areas including Salisbury, Portsmouth, Winchester and Southampton, as well as those from other Street Pastor areas in Eastleigh Borough, Fair Oak, Hedge End and Chandler’s Ford.
What kind of training do street pastors get?
Our training programme equips you for everything you need to join one of our patrols, and aims to set the tone for continued learning while you are out on the streets. We hope it will also equip you to be a more aware and informed citizen the rest of the time!
Examples of topics covered: Loving like Jesus; Roles and responsibilities of street pastors; Skills – listening, caring and helping;
Street craft – observation, assessment and intervention; Police and CCTV; Homelessness; Drugs and alcohol; Youth and Community
