Shaped for service is an advanced training course for experienced Schools, Youth, Children’s and Families’ workers.
Full-time workers with children, young people and families face ever-increasing challenges. The context is professional, fast-moving and demanding. This course provides the opportunity for you to become better equipped for the task to which God has called you. It aims to:
•Explore current challenges and issues in mission with children, young people and families •Examine trends and their impact on current and future opportunities. •Encourage personal reflection on existing practice and offer guidance and direction for future development. It is suitable for people working in either school or church contexts and at times there will be separate sessions to reflect those contexts. However this course is only open to people who already have at least two years’ experience in schools, youth, children’s or families work. Please contact us if you have any queries about your eligibility or the suitability of the course for your needs.

How to get your kids through church without them ending up hating God: Every year, thousands of young people leave the church and for many of us, this is a personal concern. However many of them don’t actually turn their back on God, but on something else.
This tour, presented by Care for the Family, is an opportunity for parents, church leaders and youth workers to join Rob Parsons and the team as we discover together what that ‘something’ might be, and try to change it.
The event will include the following:
• God has no grandchildren – how children find a faith of their own • The jelly-mould syndrome – there is no ‘one size fits all’ • Facing up to ‘the Big Five’ – the main killers of faith • Handling the three disappointments that come to all of us
The Colwyn Bay event will be held in Sure Hope Church on Tuesday June 4th
The Swansea event in The City Temple on Tuesday June 11th

Devised by leaders at All Souls, Langham Place, London, this one-day event is designed to help Christian professionals integrate their Christian walk with their professional practice. Mark O’ Donoghue, minister at Christ Church, Kensington will open the day with ‘The story of work: creation to redemption’ and Chris Wright, International Director of the Langham Partnership will conclude the day with ‘The story of work: new creation’. In between, sector groups will meet for their own sessions.
The education sector group will be led by Hugh Bradby, ACT’s chair of trustees and general secretary of TISCA, The Independent Schools Christian Alliance. All Christians in education are invited to attend, and there is a discounted price of £20 for those booking by the end of April. If you’ve even thought “How can I make a Christian difference in my school / college?” I would encourage you to attend. And the informal network links you make could be life-enhancing.
