Children and family ministry training 

A new course that aims to equip children’s and families workers is being offered by Bristol Baptist College

Children Family Ministry

The Certificate in Theology, Ministry and Mission is a flexible one-year course that integrates pioneering vocational training, biblical study and theological reflection.  
The course leader is Sian Hancock, Director of the Centre for Family and Childhood Studies at Bristol Baptist College, and a member of the Children and Young Families Round Table, a group of Baptists dedicating to nurturing faith in those children, young people and families whom God has put us next to.
She said, ‘We're very excited at the opportunity this flexible one-year course offers. It enables students to start with their understanding of God and what God is doing both within and beyond the local church.  
‘It will equip students with the practical skills, knowledge and understanding needed to build effective relationships across the generations, to creatively communicate the love of God with clarity and to pastorally care and disciple children and their families.’
College Principal Steve Finamore added the new course could be 'just what churches are looking for'.

He said, ‘I am delighted that Bristol Baptist College is expressing its commitment to ministry to children and families with an exciting new Certificate in Theology, Ministry and Mission (Children and Families Ministry).
‘We know that churches are looking for ways to equip the leaders of their children’s work and we believe that this is just what they are looking for. Alongside specialist modules and placements, it offers training in Bible and theology in a vibrant faith community.
‘This will help to prepare us for a ministry that is vital to the future of the church.’

The course begins in September. For more information and to enrol, visit: http://www.bristol-baptist.ac.uk/children-youth-ministry/children-family-course/
