Volunteering and Heritage Activity Workshop
This event is a one day workshop aimed at churches planning significant development projects where effective volunteer invovement is essential and imaginative development of heritage activties is a key aspect of the project.
The morning session will be led by the Churches Conservation Trust and will focus on volunteer recruitment, training, management and development, and will also look at how tools such social media can be used as part of this process.
In the afternoon, Jo Scott will lead on heritage activities with an emphasis on going from ideas to actions by focusing in on the most engaging and achievable activities to celebrate your church’s heritage, to engage your audiences effectively, and to working towards a useful, practical and realistic Heritage Activity Plan.
Why should you attend this event?
The day will help to give the necessary tools and confidence to recruit new volunteers, promote your project and develop your heritage activities. It will also be very much a workshop rather than a talking shop, and will be a great opportunity through that hands on involvement to learn from each other’s experiences, combine resources, and contribute to the wider network of churches in Inspired Futures.
This event is offered as part of the Inspired Futures Project, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. Priority will be given to bookings from the 18 Project churches but bookings from other churches will also be welcomed.
Refreshments and sandwich lunch provided.
The event is free of charge, but prior booking essential!
