If you would be interested in becoming a Street Pastor then the first thing we would like to do is invite you to come out one evening to observe what happens on a patrol with one of our teams. Please use the contact details on this website to get in touch and arrange a date.

If you then wish to join the team, then the next step is to complete an application before undertaking training. The training is very important so please check the dates further down this page to see when the next course is coming up. If it’s soon, then we can try to expedite your application.

The basic requirements are:
– That you are over 18
– That you have been based in a local Christian Church for at least one year
– That your Church Leader will give you a positive reference
– That you complete all the forms and DBS check
– That you complete the Street Pastor in-person and online training modules.
