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.
