Employed Youth Workers
Our parish youth workers are key stakeholders in our work and we hold bi-monthly networking events for prayer, worship and youth ministry/youthwork practice issues. These meetings are jointly hosted with the Diocesan Children’s Mission Enabler, and parish Children’s and Families workers also attend.
We also run retreats, either as part of the general networking schedule, or as an extra date – for example, we often hold a summer day retreat. If you’re not already involved contact the office to ensure you are emailed details of each gathering prior to the event.
The dates for our meetings in 2017 are as follows:
22 March, 22 June (retreat), 27 September, 7 December (Christmas lunch).
We also hold occasional meetings with our Bishops and key youth work practitioners.
There may be training which you need more tailored to your own particular environment, and the Youth Officer is happy to accommodate such requests where possible.
