Event description

Description

How can a childrens and youth ministry thrive over many years?

How do we avoid burning out our leaders, both paid and volunteer?

How do we recruit new volunteers and grow them in skills and confidence?

How could you create systems that minimise admin time, and allow you to be with the children and young people you work with more?

We know that these are complicated, long-term issues, but at January's RNG Lab we will begin to explore these and other issues together, providing you with opportunities to reflect, and to share experience and expertise.

Who should come to this RNG Lab?

Anyone interested in developing minstries with children, young people and families that thrive over many years, avoid burning out leaders (both paid and volunteer), recruit new volunteers and grow them in skills and confidence, and create systems that minimise admin time, and allow us to be with the children and young people you work with more of the time.

This course would also be an ideal refresher for people who have attended the course previously.

We welcome all persons in roles that are paid or volunteer, lay or ordained from any denomination.

How much does this training event cost?

This event is free to anyone working with children, young people and families in churches across the Lichfield Diocese Region. We are keen to resource the wider church in the region in addition to Lichfield Diocese Churches.

About the RNG Team

The Reaching New Generations team works to inspire, equip and resource churches across the CofE Diocese of Lichfield to better engage with children, young people and their familes.
