We are recruiting now!

Street Pastors are volunteers recruited from local Christian churches that we feel confident can fulfil the commitment to training and regular patrols ( approximately one night per month).

We always welcome people, as a first step, to come out with us on patrol as an observer.

The next stages are:

  1. We take up references from their local church leader and one other person and carry out an enhanced DBS check before allowing an applicant to be commissioned.
  2. Initial training takes about 3 days including a full day Roles and Responsibilities course run by a trainer from our parent body, Ascension Trust and 3 or 4 other courses either online or in person in an evening or at a weekend.
  3. The new Street Pastor can then be commissioned in a short ceremony in their church during a service or in a small group, depending on their preference.  They then join the rota and will patrol about once a month.
