Event description

Description

The church is a huge provider of children's, youth and families work across the United Kingdom. Much of this work is provided by volunteers who give their time, money and skills for free. This RNG Lab will be delivered by Julia Hill and Jo Cox from the Church Urban Fund and will be highly relevant to anyone involved in recruiting, co-ordinating, training or managing volunteers, particularly those involved in a children's, youth and families ministry context. In particular, Julia and Jo are interested in making these processes easier and reducing unnecessary red-tape.

Come for Breakfast

Space to meet others in similar situations is a core part of every RNG Lab. So as part of the day, we're inviting you to a free Breakfast with other workers from across the region. Just arrive between 0915 and 1000 for tea, coffee and a breakfast buttie (bacon, sausage, egg, and vegan alternatives).

Who should come to this RNG Lab?

Anyone who recruits, trains, manages or works alongside volunteers, especially those in children's, youth and families work settings. This includes persons in roles that are paid or volunteer, lay or ordained. The day is primarily focussed on children's, youth and families ministry, but will benefit others working alongside volunteers, too.


How much does this training event cost?

This event is free to anyone who recruits, trains, manages or works alongside volunteers, especially those in children's, youth and families work settings. We are keen to resource the wider church in the region in addition to Lichfield Diocese Churches.

FAQs

What are my transport options for getting to the event?

To work out your best options for travel, we suggest using Google Maps. Beacon International Centre is just 2 miles from Stafford town centre and its mainline railway station, it is 3.5 miles from junction 14 of the M6 Motorway.


What is parking like? Are there Disabled Parking Spaces?

Beacon International Centre has 18 allocated spaces. There are an additional 20 unmarked bays. Please do not use any other marked parking spaces - these are for other organisations, but there is always plenty of parking space on the road outside Anson Court.

Beacon International Centre has 2 disabled parking bays. If you have any concerns or questions about parking arrangements, email kevin@staffordbeacon.co.uk or call 01785 212 504.
