Community of Faith Conference for Paid Workers 2018

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. There will also be time set aside to enjoy the hotel facilities and to worship together.

Comments from those attending in 2017:

  • It was an amazing 3 days - I felt God's presence from the minute I walked through the doors. Such an amazing warmth and deep sense of positivity in one room with lovely people.
  • An invaluable conference to hear about great work going on in CofS, expand your own knowledge and get to know others in a similar position.
  • It’s totally worth going to, even if you don't  get anything from the content, the networking opportunities are worth it alone.
  • So many paid workers are overworked and isolated  with only volunteers of dubious help. This was a chance to be a team and feel  supported by people who get it.
  • An opportunity for fellowship and a vital chance to connect with fellow paid workers of CYP.
