Training is an important part of our work with parishes across the Diocese. We offer a variety of training, as well as signposting to other training courses.

Leaders of Young Generations

We support leaders of young generations (children and family and youth workers, whether paid or voluntary) through a network which meets at least once a term to worship, gain input and provide mutual support. Everyone who works with children and young people is welcome. To make sure you know when the next Leaders of Young Generations Network event is and for signposting to resources, sign up to receive the ebulletin.

We offer training activities with parish-specific, bespoke training offered if requested and possible. We try to open these to nearby parishes if possible to make the most effective use of our time. Please contact us to find out if we can help you with your training needs.
