Youth & Children’s Work Training & Events
If the children and young people in our parishes and communities are “to encounter the love and depth of the Christian faith and the person of Jesus Christ” (Going for Growth 2010) then it is vital that those who work as children’s & youth leaders in our churches, whether voluntarily or as employed workers, are trained and equipped for service.
There are a variety of courses available, from professional qualifications offered by recognised providers to local events designed for local leaders:
Onelife Young Leaders – for the specific development of young people.
The Certificate of Higher Education in Theology, Ministry and Mission is accredited by Durham University through a partnership with Ripon College, Cuddesdon. It can be focused towards pioneer youth ministry by choosing the relevant modules. These are taught over two years. Most students complete four in the first year and two in the second. Each module is generally taught over a series of seven days in Oxford. The days run from 10.30am to 4pm to give students time to travel. There are two weekends incorporated to visit and learn from mission practice.
