'A great day of really useful skill based training for all of us who are involved in youth and children's ministry'
'We all really enjoyed meeting people from other churches and hearing about what they were doing in their churches'
'Just wanted to thank you for a great day on Saturday it was one of the best days training I have been to and we all found it very beneficial. We also wanted to thank you for your hospitality and friendly welcome.the food was amazing and much more than we were expecting.It is good to go on a training day that is church of Ireland based as everyone is coming from the same place and you get to know so many people. Thanks again we look forward to next years.'
'Fantastic food and hospitality'
'Thank you for Saturday. We found it very helpful. We especially enjoyed the session on up front essentials for leading children's ministry and as a 'newby' to the role as Sunday School Leader will definitely make use of some of your handy wee tips.'
These are some of the comments coming back from the 'Essentials' workshop training day held at the beginning of November at Dundela Parish Hall in Belfast.
Thank you to everyone who came to the day, just over 80 people in total, for your enthusiasm and response to the training and your full participation in the day.
It is our hope that 'Essentials' will be a feature in the yearly calendar . . . we will be bringing it earlier in the year . . . so keep a look out for 'Essentials' at the end of September 2014
