Culture Uncovered: Cultural Engagement for Kids & Youth Ministry is a week-long intensive study course for those who are in full or part-time children’s and/or youth ministry.

The week will allow participants to delve deeply into the area of worldview and culture, consider how to engage with culture usefully for ministry amongst children and young people and also consider the role of the imagination in the spiritual formation of children.
