Registration details coming soon!

***Coronavirus upate: We are planning to run this event and are excited about it, but obviously the will depend on government guidelines.

In partnership with Growing Young Disciples this is an opportunity to consider the pastoral care of children, young people and youth leaders, in the context of an intensive residential setting.

Come along and spend a week with ministry peers looking deeper into the area of pastoral care.

The residential training course is designed for all those concerned to raise children and young people in the knowledge and love to the Lord Jesus.

The course will consider carefully many of the pastoral care areas and issues that arise in children’s and youth ministry; there will be opportunities to consider each area carefully and understand the nature of the issues and the biblical response to caring for children and young people who are struggling in.

Each day, a different topic will be covered. Topics include: Image disorders such as body dysmorphia, eating disorders and self harming; family matters such as separation, divorce and blended families; addiction issues including alcohol, drugs, technology and pornography; children and mental such as behavioural disorders and mental health struggles, and gender issues.
