 The training course has been produced by the Community Chaplaincy Association. This is a national body that brings together best practice and makes it available to local Community Chaplaincy projects.

All our volunteers are required to do the training so that they understand the aims of the project and what would be required of a mentor. Completing the training does not commit you to becoming a mentor nor does it commit us to accepting you on the project.

If these dates and times are not suitable please still get in touch and we will see what we can do.

Trainers:

Paula Callam, also volunteering as a mentor, is an experienced trainer having spent six and half years in Antigua training Street Pastors and assisting in running the Street Pastors Project on the island.

Susan Carne Project Manager for CCN is a minister in the Assemblies of God Church, and has worked as a volunteer chaplain in Wayland prison.
