Train Up Children’s Work Training

Train Up and ‘Bite Size’ Train Up provide training, resources and network opportunities to those who work with children in the region.  Train Up aims to motivate children’s workers as they enthuse children on their journey of faith.

Feedback on our last Train Up day in 2016 was very positive with over 70 church children’s workers attending. It was a lively, inspiring and faith-building day where the attendees came together to learn, make contacts and be inspired and challenged by our very gifted speakers.

Workshop topics in 2016 ranged from working with under 5s or mixed age groups to creative play and storytelling and on to children’s spirituality and how to help children encounter God. There was also an opportunity to pray together, network and learn about new resources available for children’s ministry. Everyone left with new ideas, refreshed and encouraged in their ministries.

Bite Size Train Up Evenings

‘Bite Size’ Train Up evenings are training evenings that take place bi-annually in the alternate years to Train Up. Our last two Bite-Size evenings were in October 2017 where we looked at:

  • How do we engage with children on their walk with God?
  • What challenges do children’s workers face?
