The leadership development of young people is important not just for the growth of children’s and youth ministry in our parishes, but in many other aspects of life. The L.I.T (Leaders In Training) programme is a diocesan initiative for anyone aged 15+ that involves 3 distinct but connected levels of training and development which would steadily progress their growth in leadership and increase the expectations of commitment and ability involved.

#1. LIT Course: Aimed at 15-18 year olds and involving 7 training sessions on Biblical leadership including a weekend residential. Each participant will receive their own course handbook and recieve a certificate on completion. No prior experience of leadership will be necessary.

#2. LIT Camp: A 5-day camp aiming to grow young people’s leadership character and skills. Focussing on Bible studies,Outdoor activities, Group work and leadership skills, ‘Upfront’ opportunities to lead worship, Organisational leadership opportunities focussing on the background work, Servant leadership development like cooking, cleaning & other ways to help.

#3. LIT Plus: Only for those who have participated in the LIT Camp, LIT Plus will build on the skills and experience gained on the camp and apply it to a supervised junior leadership opportunity. LIT Plus will finish with certification and a two-year personal plan developed with each participant to continue their leadership development, experience and training.
