Train Up – Children’s Work Training

Train Up and ‘Bite Size’ Train Up provide training, resources and network opportunities to those who work with children in the region.

Train Up aims to motivate children’s workers as they enthuse children on their journey of faith.

Train Up: A day for those who work in children’s ministry

A lively, inspirational and faith-building day for children’s workers to come together and be challenged and motivated.

The keynote speaker this year is Rachel Turner (Parenting for Faith). Workshop leaders include: Victoria Beech (God Venture), Simon Barker (Scripture Union), Nicola Grieves (Eastern URC) and Debbie Hill (Ely Diocese).

Feedback on our last Train Up day in 2016 was very positive with over 70 church children’s workers attending. It was a lively, inspiring and faith-building day where the attendees came together to learn, make contacts and be inspired and challenged by our very gifted speakers.

Workshop topics in 2016 ranged from working with under 5s or mixed age groups to creative play and storytelling and on to children’s spirituality and how to help children encounter God. There was also an opportunity to pray together, network and learn about new resources available for children’s ministry. Everyone left with new ideas, refreshed and encouraged in their ministries.

Bite Size Train Up Evenings

‘Bite Size’ Train Up evenings are training evenings that take place bi-annually in the alternate years to Train Up. Our last two Bite-Size evenings were in October 2017 where we looked at:

‘How do we engage with children on their walk with God?’
‘What challenges do children’s workers face?’
What People Have Said:

Absolutely fantastic day. A big thanks for all the effort and organisation that went into making this day a real hit. Inspiring, moving, thought provoking, encouraging, intelligent and applicable….!

I think it’s so important to have something like Train Up to bring children’s workers together and give them ideas.

I put some of it into practice today with our Monday night outreach clubs.

Well done today for pulling together a great event. It was well organised & thoughtfully run.

It was excellent, and possibly one of the best training events I have come across for children’s workers.
