Pastoral Assistant Training


Aims of the Course

To enable those engaged in pastoral care to become more effective in relating to and caring for the people and communities on behalf of their local church community; and to enable those testing a calling to explore their understanding of pastoral care ministry.

Who is it for?

  • Those who are members of a pastoral care team and who desire to learn more about pastoral care in order to help others both informally and formally
  • Those in church leadership or who have specific church roles and who desire to develop their awareness of pastoral care in order to support those for whom they have responsibility
  • Those who wish to help others in specific community and workplace settings and desire to learn more about pastoral care in outreach and mission
  • Those who desire to explore and pursue a call to pastoral care and be recognised as an ALM in their local church or chaplaincy
