Who is it for?

  • It is not just for those who work with kids.  
  • It is mandatory training for anyone who does any volunteer work in the church.  It is a denominational requirement that for all who serve in any ministry.

    It is a mandatory training for all volunteer workers in churches in the Baptist denomination.  

What if I can’t make it?

What changes have been made to the training?

  • There is no longer a separate ‘full course’ and ‘refresher course’.  There is only one course now offered which covers both.
  • The length of the course has been shortened to only 3 hours (previously 6 hours).  To make this possible, a online module has been introduced which must be completed BEFORE the face-to-face workshop.

What if I need help?
