The Man You’re Made To Be: Helping Boys to Connect with Christian Faith

There’s a unique set of challenges which comes with reaching boys, thanks to a mix of hormones, cultural norms and physical differences. In this training day, experienced youth worker and NEET intervention specialist Matt Allen will look at how to work with the range of behaviours and learning styles exhibited by young men, while Martin Saunders will share some of the ideas from his new book on how to craft a message and programme of discipleship that really connects with today’s teenage boys.

Sexting, Social Media and Staying Safe Online

Young people who send and receive sexts are more likely to engage in early sexual behaviours that brings with it a range of emotional, sexual and physical risks. Led by Rachel Gardner, this one-day seminar will equip youth practitioners and parents to respond positively to the curiosity and peer pressure young people experience.

Therapeutic Mentoring

With Mental Health services stretched, and thresholds for specialist support increasingly harder to meet, youth workers are finding themselves filling the gap. This day will equip you with the skills and resources to confidently offer support.

Managing Staff in Christian Ministry

What’s the best approach if you’re responsible for line management in your organisation or church? How do you resolve conflict and problems effectively? This day will give you the skills to develop good tried and tested structures of management.

Engaging Young People with Climate Justice

Whether your group is highly engaged in the topic of climate change, or just watchful of this global youth phenomenon – it is imperative that we engage with this topic, explore it theologically and consider its trajectory. A training day led by Tearfund and Youthscape.

Fundraising for Independent Charities and Youth Projects

Are you trying to raise funds for your church or organisation? Wondering where and how to apply, and how to pitch it right? This day is a comprehensive guide to finding grant-making trusts and knowing how to go about creating a winning application.

Third Space: Unlocking the Shared Spaces in Schools

As Christian visitors in schools, we mainly operate in two spaces; curricular and extra-curricular. What if there was a ‘Third Space’? This equipping day will explore what that could look like for you, in your context.
