School and College Pastors (SCP) launched in 2009 and is part of the Ascension Trust, the Christian charity that developed Street Pastors.
SCP is currently active in 30 areas in the UK.
“School and College Pastors offer something that in today’s society is in worryingly short supply; an adult who is willing to perform the simple task of listening to a child. This act tells the child that they are valued and that their opinion matters, and can provide the foundation for greater self-confidence and educational attainment.”
Bejoy Pal, National School and College Pastors Coordinator
We are hoping to launch this scheme at Cullompton Community College in September 2018. Prior to this, there will be meetings with the school and local stakeholders as well as a programme of training for the volunteers.
If you feel that God might be calling you to get involved, would like further information and/or would like to make a donation to our start-up costs, please chat to Judy Wincott or Martin Smith.
