DIPLOMA IN CHILDREN’S MINISTRY

Gaining a children’s ministry qualification is often an important indicator of your passion, commitment, experience and professionalism. We therefore offer the Diploma in Children’s Ministry for those currently working with, or planning to work with children especially within the church setting.

The course is for children’s workers and those who wish to work with children and their families from a Christian value-base. Interactive training days and distance learning materials enable learning about children’s ministry and deepen understanding whilst developing skills.

The course seeks to provide a practical and theological lens on the core skills in the formation of children’s workers. It is aimed at those who may be young leaders, volunteers or group leaders. Whilst it focuses on a Christian context, this is not limited to Sunday morning models.

The course will increase confidence, credibility and creativity; and is delivered in a user-friendly manner.

You will gain a deeper understanding of your practice/ministry within the guidelines of the Playwork Principles.
