Training is an important part of our work with parishes across the Diocese.
We offer a variety of training, as well as signposting to other training courses.

Leaders of Young Generations

We support leaders of young generations (children and family and youth workers, whether paid or voluntary) through a network which meets at least once a term to worship, gain input and provide mutual support. Everyone who works with children and young people is welcome. To make sure you know when the next Leaders of Young Generations Network event is and for signposting to resources, sign up to receive the ebulletin.
Dates for your diary (please book via the Events tab):
Terrific Toddlers 9.30am - 3pm Saturday 29th June, All Saints, Hoole, CH2 3HZ - booking opening soon


We offer training activities with parish-specific, bespoke training offered if requested and possible. We try to open these to nearby parishes if possible to make the most effective use of our time. Please contact us to find out if we can help you with your training needs.


The Amplify Course is an opportunity to go deeper into the world of youth or children’s work/ministry. It is an in-depth training opportunity for those working with children or young people looking to develop their knowledge and practice.
The course is taught over two residential weekends, and one day, venues to be confirmed.

The three areas studied are:
Reflective Practice
Context, Relationships and Leadership
Spirituality, Faith Development and Worship
The course has a unique assessment style, allowing participants to take part at a level appropriate to them. Amplify is about growing your skills through refective practice, thought provoking input, and stimulating conversation.
The dates for the 2019/2020 course will be confirmed soon, but will begin in September or October.
The cost for the course is £350 which includes the residential stays with all food included.
