EVENTS & TRAINING
See below for details of upcoming events:
Scripture Union - Introduction to Schools Work
95% of under-18s aren't in church BUT the majority of them are in schools. So what does it look like for us as schools workers to connect with them there? Whether you are new to schools work or are only just venturing back into schools since restrictions have been lifting, this is for you! There are two options:
Online: Tuesday 21st September
In person: Thursday 23rd September (in London).

Developing Mentoring Skills for Work with Young People
Tuesday 21st September from 9am - 4pm at STC Sheffield
Ben Harper is running a training opportunity on for anyone wanting to develop their skills for mentoring young people. Young people need one-to-one investment from 'emotionally available adults' more than ever, and this course will equip you with some of the basic skills needed to do that.
Book early to avoid disappointment. Anyone from a South Yorkshire Church gets a massive £35 discount on the full (£50) price of this course thanks to the generous investment of Sheffield Methodist Circuit and URC Yorkshire Synod. Use code 'SYChurches' at the checkout to claim your discount.
