The involvement of volunteer leaders is vital to the successful running of youth and children ministry and growing the faith of children and young people. However it is also important that leadership opportunities grow the skills and faith of the volunteer leaders themselves. To this end we provide a number of opportunities for leaders to get involved in various teams to gain vital skills and experience while running programmes.
Typical skills learned include programme planning and preparation, group work, teaching, leading discussions, up-front skills and relational and communication skills.
Typical opportunities for leaders in our team ministries include leadership at Confirmation Weekends and Summer Madness, Holiday Bible Clubs, diocesan events such as the Children’s Praise Party and Saturday Night Live, overseas teams and organisation committees such as the Youth and Children’s Working Groups.
