Safe Church Awareness Workshop (Full Day, 9am – 4pm)
Be trained and equipped to ensure your Community of Hope and Compassion is a Safe Place for everyone. This training workshop is perfect for everyone in your community, from Team Leaders and Pastors, to Elders, to Volunteer Leaders. Safe Church Awareness Workshops are facilitated by trained presenters, hosted by local churches, and attendance is recognised by members of the National Council of Churches in Australia Safe Church Training Agreement.
CCVT recommends that all leaders and volunteers including pastors, elders, deacons, leadership teams, ministry leaders, pastoral carers, and those working with children & youth attend a Safe Church Awareness Workshop as a pre-requisite to ministry in the local church.
Marriage License Training (Full Day, 9am – 4pm)
This training day will enable leaders to be well prepared to offer effective pastoral care and marriage preparation, lead meaningful wedding services, and provide ethical and legally competent ministry as a BUV or CCVT marriage celebrant. This training day is for new celebrants and experienced celebrants who are in need for a refresher.
Topics covered in this training day include ethical considerations; preparing the wedding service; legal requirements; and pastoral considerations in marriage preparation.
Generations—Children and families, Youth, and Young Adults (Full Day, 9am – 4pm)
Gather in open discussion with leaders who work with children, youth, young adults, and families to discuss how ministries to people at different stages of life can form an integrated, multi-generational church vision. Bring your questions and experiences, and join in the discussion about how ministries can be better together, and how churches can partner across neighbourhoods to support one another.
This full day workshop will welcome speakers from local churches who will share what they have learned from their stories, followed by open discussion and mutual exploration of topics close to your heart.
Leader Wellbeing (Half Day, 9am – 1pm)
