Community of Faith Conference for Paid Workers 2019

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

If you are a children/youth/family worker, then this is the conference for you! 

Over the 48 hours we will think about our theme of discipleship, with time set aside to share good practice with one another in small learning communities.
