Anyone wishing to be a street pastor needs to be connected/be a member of a local church and their church leader will be asked to give a reference. We will pay for a police check as we require a clear disclosure (DBS) for safeguarding.
We are still looking for new volunteers to train as street pastors and prayer pastors and if we get enough will be putting on more training.
