Growing Bridgebuilders – Training the Trainers Day, Ware

October 5, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

| Free

Many struggle with conflict. Christians often avoid it – especially in the church. This practical resource will help people be better equipped for life together. It focuses on building bridges, and how to embrace and transform differences, tensions and conflicts as a way to grow a healthy Christian community.

Growing Bridgebuilders is a discipleship resource which distils the core of Bridge Builders’ acclaimed training courses into an effective toolkit for Church leaders to use with their people. The training pack has been developed jointly by Bridge Builders and CPAS.

The Pack

Everything you need to run the 8-session course is in the pack:

  • Planning materials
  • Leader’s guides
  • Participant handouts
  • Access to PowerPoint presentations.

The pack costs £47+PP and is available to buy on the CPAS website

‘This is an excellent and accessible resource that can help transform the way tensions are handled within churches of every tradition.’  Rachel Treweek, Bishop of Gloucester

‘This course changes people’s lives.’  Course Leader

Training the Trainers Day

To get inside how to run Growing Bridgebuilders we encourage potential leaders of the course to attend one of our Training the Trainers days. They include:

  • An overview of the course
  • Hands on engagement with course material
  • Ideas on how to promote, prepare and run a course

The day runs from 10:00am to 4:00pm, and costs £80 including a Growing Bridgebuilders pack (normal pack price £47+PP), or £50 without a pack. A light lunch and refreshments are included.

Feedback from participants at Growing Bridgebuilders workshops:

‘I feel I have a greater understanding of the course. The workbook is outstanding with clear instructions and content.’

‘The workshop has delivered exactly what I was hoping for. I am excited by this resource, having had a passion for reconciliation for some time. This is a tool in our hands to share it more widely and equip others.’

‘Very practical and anticipated all the practicalities to do with running the course.’
