Youthscape Essentials Course 2024

Tuesday May 7, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm


Youthscape Essentials

An innovative course for volunteers that increases your skills and understanding about working alongside young people today. Whether you’re running a community project, a church youth group, or occasionally helping out on a Sunday morning, the course is designed with you in mind!

It’s not about the numbers of young people attending, it’s about putting God at the centre of your youth ministry.

Sessions will include:

7th May – Why Youth Ministry / Building rapport with young people

4th June – Growing Up Digital / Safeguarding and safety (NB this does not replace statutory SafeGuarding training)

18th June – Growing Up Gen Z / Empowering young people to participate
