Courses are open to everyone
There are two main paths: a central training programme and the local training programme. All training for 2020/2021 will be held online.
Central training programme
Courses are mostly free to members of the Diocese of Southwark or heavily subsidised and generally held at Trinity House (or online during the pandemic).
Check out the What’s On page for upcoming training.
Local training programme
This is aimed at parishes, clusters of churches and/or deaneries who want to run training tailored to their local needs. Advice and guidance is offered to ensure maximum effectiveness. The CYP local training fund is available to help pay for any trainer costs (T+Cs apply) and we can also help if you need advice on sourcing suitable training. Get in touch to see how we can support your local ministry.
CYP Basics, led by Keli Bolton: This is our core course for those engaged or interested in work with CYP. It’s a whistle-stop tour across the basics of ministry with CYP which does not assume experience and yet offers much for lively discussion, reflection and development of practice. It works especially well with whole (or majority) volunteer teams from churches as it encourages teams to think together about their vision for ministry.
Meet Gen Z, led by Aike Kennett-Brown: This half day or evening session is aimed at helping your church think about the culture that our young people inhabit and how we can share faith between the different generations.
Safeguarding Training: It is a legal requirement for anyone volunteering with CYP to have safeguarding training. For more details do look at our Safeguarding Training page
We can also speak as part of your Sunday service or other events. Do contact us to chat through the possibilities.
