Training a new street pastor or refreshing the training of an experienced volunteer is a priority for Ascension Trust. Training takes place locally or regionally and is made up of core sessions and a programme of other sessions that are tailored to the local context and needs.
We generally recommend that street pastors complete 42 hours of training in the first 18 months after being commissioned.
Could I be a Street Pastor?
Street pastors come from right across the Christian community and can be anyone who:
- has been committed to a church fellowship for more than one year, with a personal reference from their minister or church leader
- has attended the training programme
- is over the age of 18
- has been checked by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS)
