Youth and Children’s work training available in the Diocese.
Please contact Tim Feak if you would like him to deliver training in your area. The training can be provided throughout the Diocese. A minimum of 12 participants is required.
All of the training below is designed to be informal, fun and provide you with the inspiration and tools to go back to whatever context you deliver children’s or youth work in. You do not even have to be currently involved in this work, you just need to be interested.
