Saturday 11th May 2019, Samuel Marsden Collegiate School, Karori, Wellington
This event is for all teams and their leaders – including Vestry members, wardens, children’s ministry volunteers, youth workers, those who serve the cups of tea, clergy, those in lay ministry… if you are part of a team that serves in your church, you’re invited to Team Training Day – there’s something here for you!
We hold two training days every year, one in the north of the diocese and one in the south – but each one is different. The day is full of useful workshops across a spectrum of topics, from governance and leadership to prayer, ministry and social justice topics.
Some workshops are repeated at each event so more people can attend them, but the majority of topics are fresh offerings from a whole range of speakers. And ensuring the day is infused with a fantastic atmosphere of fellowship and whānau, we gather as a church family to worship, pray and hear from our bishops, with plenty of time over lunch to hang out, get to know each other and enjoy great food and coffee.
Every Easter, Manfield Park turns up the volume when youth from across the lower North Island move in for five days. Easter Camp is buzzing with crazy activities, hang outs with mates, mean music and top speakers – it’s about building community and connecting with God.
