Resourcing the Rural Church

Equip logo

Join us at Bankfoot Church Centre on 24 February for our first ever Sports Equip event.

The event will involve a number of workshops and a keynote speaker, encouraging us as the local church to identify how we can use sport as a way of connecting with our communities.

With so many major sporting events taking place across the world in 2018, is there an opportunity for us to reach out to those around us?

Details on the workshops will follow soon.

Please note that a £10 fee applies to cancellations after 11 February or if you fail to attend on the day.

Community of Faith Conference for Paid Workers poster

A brilliant opportunity to connect, be resourced and inspired - designed specifically for those who are paid to work with and minister to children and young people in the church.

If you are a children's, youth or family worker, this is the conference you! Over the course of 48 hours we will consider our theme of Encounter, with time set aside to share good practice in small learning communities. In particular we will think about sharing faith; gender; GIRFEC; YoYP 2018; and mental health, exploring some of the latest research and thinking in these areas.
