This three-day course is for people who have already completed a foundation course with Bridge Builders, and want to share some of the skills and insights about conflict that they have learned.
Since 1996, Bridge Builders has led dozens of introductory workshops and courses throughout the UK for a wide variety of church groups. Training of Trainers draws on that experience to equip others to lead a day-long workshop. Along with offering a trainer’s manual, the course provides detailed guidelines on how to lead elements of a workshop using Bridge Builders’ workshop manual. The course also enables participants to explore how the materials might be adapted to their own church and denominational context.
Bridge Builders’ vision is to help Christians and the church to learn to handle conflict, deal with differences, engage respectfully with one another, and make decisions in collaborative and consensual ways – so that we can live out the gospel that Jesus revealed. Our expectation is that this will transform the church’s witness and outreach to the world. Learn how to help spread this vision for the church!
The course includes teaching, group work and practice. Practical in focus, the sessions seek to demonstrate Bridge Builders’ active approach to education and learning. Each day include times of prayer and worship.
