SCHOOL CHAPLAINCY COURSE
School Chaplaincy Training and Resourcing Course
Chaplaincy does life with people where they are. Life is often messy, rough edged, conflicted. Chaplaincy is where Christians need to be, sharing the journeys people are on. It is particularly valid when it comes to serving young people. Over 95% of young people are not in church. They are, however, in school, so to ‘do life’ with this generation, to serve, help or invest in them we need to be where they are - in schools. School chaplaincy does life with young people in schools.
Christians & Sheffield Schools, The Diocese of Sheffield and The Methodist Church run a training course for those interested in school chaplaincy. The programme will include: understanding chaplaincy; school expectations and boundaries; children & spirituality (SMSC); characteristics of Generation Z; chaplaincy in a multi-faith setting; safeguarding; mental health; loss and bereavement and identity matters.
Previous delegates attest to the course’s value: "Inspiring and helpful"; "Such breadth and quality of input"; "Hugely informative, real and helpful course"; "I would recommend it".
"I did not put this course together so I can attest with independence that it is one of the best courses I know," Huw Thomas (Diocesan Director of Education).
