Saturday Training Days

Saturday Training Days.

Launched in Autumn 2015 our Saturday Training Days have been an excellent way to gather small group leaders, trustees & part-time staff or volunteers from across churches in ChristCentral. These training days take place 3 times per year, provide practical training on a relevant subject, and each subject is usually run in two locations – Bolton and Darlington – on different dates. These days are aimed at various teams within the churches we serve and are based on a variety of subjects for instance: Administration, Children & Youth Work, Pastoral Care, Safeguarding, Student Work, Trusteeship, and Worship & Musicianship.

Further details on how to book in to each training day will be provided as soon as they are available.

    Safeguarding Day

    This day looks at the impact of new legislation in relation to vulnerable adults and children, the need for updated policies, practices and procedures, what the pastoral issues are and how leaders can protect themselves and those they care for.

    The training is aimed specifically at church leaders, social action ministry leaders, children’s leaders, safeguarding co-ordinators and trustees.

    Futher dates for this training will be published in due course

    Trustees Day

    Trustees carry the legal responsibility for charitable governance in our churches and so it is important that they and Elders understand clearly what their role is. It is also vitally important that we provide appropriate training to all those who are picking up this essential serving role in our churches.

    We know that there is a need for this type of training as we are often asked for advice on finance and governance issues. This day is a useful resource to all Trustees, whether new to the role or experienced "old hands"!

    Futher dates for this training day will be published in due course.

Designed to be accessible for a variety of people including small group leaders, trustees & part-time staff or volunteers
