Training the church in all things communication is something that we are passionate about. We have a great team who specialise in different areas of expertise – and we'd love to share that expertise with you and your church. You don't need any previous background or expertise. Every session will explore why it matters, what to consider first in creating a plan for your church, very practical steps including real examples that you can use, and a toolkit of resources for you to take back and share with others. There'll be interactive exercises, an opportunity for questions, and plenty of input to equip you.
