All sessions will be running between 12 and 2pm with Zoom info to be sent out closer to the time.


For those who prefer face to face content, we are planning three in person days which would cover three modules at a time. These will be intense days, running from 9am until 4pm, but will make the best use of travel and time.

These sessions are planned at Bethel Baptist Church, Cardiff, for
April 20th
June 29th
September 7th or 21st

Our excellent trainers Tim Barker and Emma Franks will be facilitating the training and will  be glad to welcome you either online or in person.  We would encourage you to sign up if you want to enhance your work with young people and help your church be more effective  in connecting with this age group.

Book now with Karen by emailing indicating whether you plan to attend in person or online. A course book will be sent to you, so please provide a postal address. We'll be asking for a contribution of £5 towards the book and postage, ideally sent by bank transfer
