Practical and down-to-earth advice relevant to your context
Resources and materials you can use straightaway in your work
Theologically grounded and Biblically-based teaching
Inspiring and engaging sessions with teaching, discussion and q&a
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.
A vital part of leadership is knowing how to lead others; particularly how to lead a team. How do you create clear vision and accountability and resolve problems effectively? This day will give you the skills to become a great team leader.
"These young people weren't apathetic, they just hadn't been been mobilised yet. Greta Thunberg is wonderful proof that the voice of youth has provocative power, and that young people’s actions can inspire others anywhere, though maybe not everywhere. The question for us became: ‘how do we engage our young people in this conversation?'"
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.
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.
"How do you fund the work you are doing? That's the perennial question facing many charities and small organisations. Often the task falls to the staff you already have, rather than a specialist fundraising team. But how do you go about it, especially when there are so many organisations competing for a limited pool of funds?"
A day to look at how to help teenage boys to connect, engage with and commit to the Christian faith. Being honest about the distinctive needs and challenges of young males and analysing some of the key issues facing them today, this training day will help you to think more intentionally about how to work better with what is often the harder-to-reach sex.
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.
"We know that churches with adults who work safely and effectively with young people are good places for young people to have the conversations that matter. Because although culture moves on at a pace, the issues of self-worth, handling pressure, growing in confidence, good decision making and (for those pursing Christian faith) a desire to put God first in every area of their lives are unchanging."
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.
