Training for Children's Workers


Every spring a training course is offered for those wishing to specialise in Lay Ministry with Children training.

This course is a mix of theory and practical skills based on an understanding of current theology of the child and the development of their faith. The course covers a diverse range of topics - including but not limited to;

  • theology
  • learning styles
  • imaginative storytelling
  • creative prayer 
  • faith formation.

If you, someone in your team, or someone you know would like to know more please contact Debbie Hill, Development Officer for Children & Families, on debbie.hill@elydiocese.org or 07837 699016.

Some recent comments from attendees on the course.

'The course is very thought provoking and has a practical element which is incredibly useful.'

'If you work with children in church-DO IT! A treasure chest of skills, ideas and resources can be yours and you will have fun learning!!'

'Initially I felt like a 'fish out of water'. I am now inspired, encouraged and enthusiastic. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to think more about children's ministry.'
