Joining and Training Criteria

How to become a Street Pastor

We undertake 50 hours of training over three weekends (Friday evenings and all day Saturday & Sunday), regardless of which type of Street Pastoring you wish to do. To become a Street Pastor an applicant must have been a committed Christian for at least a year, be a member of a local church, be able to provide a positive reference from his/her minister, a character reference, be at least age 18 (with no upper limit!), undergo a DBS (formerly CRB) check and the training course and be prepared to cover the cost of his/her uniform and training if at all possible (although we encourage the Street Pastors fellowship to be involved in this).

Once the initial training has been completed a Street Pastor usually commits to at least one monthly patrols in the night-time/community or if they favour School Pastors then once a week.
