Holy Things, Holy People (various dates)

Time: 20:00 - 22:00

A Church of England Young Vocations Group

Holy Things, Holy People is a group for young adults who are discerning their Christian vocation to  ordained or other ministry within the Church of England.

The course will explore Christian ministry through reflection on a series of objects, Holy Things, and the witness of individuals, Holy People.

It aims to be helpful to a broad range of interest, whether you are just curious or have already begun formally exploring your vocation.

We welcome everyone who identifies as young, and who is thinking about what God might be calling them to do or be in the life of the Church.

Meetings will be held on Mondays at 20:00 via Zoom. If you would like to join us then please email The Rev’d Max Bayliss on [email protected].

Keep your Safeguarding training up-to-date

The Church of England has introduced a new modular safeguarding training and development programme for use by Dioceses, Cathedrals and Theological Education Institutions.

The programme builds core, generic safeguarding training according to role and through a person's ministry path.

The Church of England Safeguarding Training modules consist of Core Modules; Basic Awareness (C0), Foundation (C1) and Leandership (C2) and Specialist Modules; Safer Recruitment (S1) and Responding to Domestic Violence (S3). (some other modules may also apply on occasion)

The level of the Core Module to which you are expected to undertake will determine which other modules you will need to have previously undertaken. i.e.

  • C0 - if you are only required to undertake a C0 module, you will only need to repeat that training once every three years.
  • C1 - if you are required to undertake a C1 module, you must also have completed a C0 module at least once. You then need to repeat the C1 training every three years.
  • C2 - anyone required to undertake this module must ensure they have also completed a Basic Awareness (C0) and Foundation (C1) module at least once. The C2 module must then be repeated every three years.

Review your training requirement

Help ensure you and your church colleagues are up-to-date with Safeguarding Training.
