Would you like to be part of this growing team? By the end of this year we expect to have 24 Children’s ALMs in the Diocese supporting children’s faith development.

Some comments from a recent Childrens’ ALM 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.’

The ALM Course is offering a choice of 5 evening sessions this year. If people are completing the ALM course they will need to select three. However, please note that these free evening sessions are available for anyone to attend.

Cost and booking:
