Eleven people attended a diocesan training day for Sunday School teachers and helpers at the McWilliam Park Hotel in Claremorris on Saturday 3rd September.
We were joined for the day by Lydia Monds and Lynn Storey from the Sunday School Society / Childrens’ Ministry Network.
We had an exciting programme which included a look at children’s ministry, trying some games, an exploration of children’s ministry resources and then a look at some of the things that Lydia and Lynn had tried in their own settings. It was a hugely informative and worthwhile day and everyone who attended enjoyed the day. The day included lunch together, which is always a good opportunity to get to know each other and share experiences and frustrations.
A follow up morning is planned for February 2017, where we will focus on resources for Lent, Holy Week and Easter.
