Getting equipped to work with young people, children and families is more than just having a big stash of resources (although that does help). We offer training for all leaders, helpers and volunteers. We run interest courses across the diocese (these are publicised via our events page, email newsletter and social media streams) and bespoke courses for parishes and groups. Areas of training:

  • Baptism, Confirmation & Communion Confirmation
  • Worship – All-Age, All-Stage and Multi-Generational Approaches
  • Working across Generations
  • Meeting the needs of young people, children and families
  • Nurture and Spirituality
  • Discipling young people
  • Participation – getting young people and children involved!
  • Working in local schools
  • Basic leaders course
  • Planning a programme
  • Creating a youth group
  • Inspiring creativity
  • Toddler and play groups
  • Discipline – how to work with difficult groups
  • Other – just call!

If you have a training need please do get in touch. It’s really easy to set up a training event so we look forward to hearing from you.
