Seminar details

Small groups: Success vs Survival I Sam Judd

 Ever tried to lead a small group but end up as the behaviour police? We’ve all been there! Come along to add some tools to your belt in managing the behaviour and getting the best out of your small group.

Worship with children I TBC

Many churches are yet to tap into just how powerful and life-changing kids' worship can be. This seminar will draw on several years of experience leading worship and aims to offer some helpful ideas practically and spiritually for kids leaders and worship leaders alike. There might be a few songs to illustrate those ideas too!

Love that surpasses all knowledge I Susie Yeates

In Ephesians 3 Paul prays that the Ephesians would know God’s love that surpasses knowledge- this seminar will focus on how we share the bible and enable under 5s and children with additional needs to have the opportunity to experience God’s love in a way that doesn’t focus on ‘knowledge’ and being able to learn in a traditional sense.

Youth:  Take them deeper I Katie Delamere

Discipleship is a key part of our work with young people. In this session we will look specifically at how we disciple young people at different points in their faith and how we can journey alongside them to take them deeper in their relationship with God.

Faith and the family I Susie Yeates

We have the privilege of working withe children in our churches maybe one or two hours a week. The families they live with have all week long. This seminar will talk about the importance of the home / church partnership in raising faith in our children and young people.  We will be giving  and sharing ideas in what has worked for us and what tools we can facilitate parents to  their childs primary spiritual discipler. 

The blank page I Jude Barber
