Train the Trainer Workshop

Favourable Franchise Opportunity


We are delighted to be able to offer a Train-the-Trainer Workshop to members of the clergy who would like the opportunity to learn how to deliver the Volunteering in Parishes material in their own area.


The Volunteering in Parishes Workshop, which has been running since 2007, has been so successful in churches across the UK that we would like to take the workshop forward with franchise opportunities so that all parishes can benefit from the material. Although the Workshop was initially aimed at Ministers and Church Leaders, it is also relevant to any Christian Organisation that uses volunteers. The goal of the workshop is to equip the church/organisation leadership to develop good ways of recruiting, training and motivating their volunteers. The workshop contains practical resources and plenty of inspiring ideas to enthuse and engage volunteers for the variety of roles and responsibilities in parishes today.


This Trainer Workshop will give you a comprehensive explanation of the workshop content and practical guides on how to deliver the material.



Aims and Objectives


To learn how to deliver the Volunteering in Parishes one day workshop in association with the “To Love and Serve the Lord” Workbook provided.

To explore practical ways of delivering the material in your own parish.

To obtain a clear understanding of how the workshop will run with regard to timings, content and additional materials that may be used.
