Need inspiration or help?

You've come to the right place, we'd love to help.

Every year we run a range of training sessions and courses, as well as attending those arranged by other organisations. Many of our sessions are delivered online, making them easily accessible to people from across the country. Last year we delivered our training and workshops to thousands of volunteers, clergy and others.

Our calendar of training helps you choose which is best for you and your church. It includes :

  • Our online sessions
  • Attendance at training, funding and other events by our team

Our sessions cover a wide range of topics, from maintenance to tourism and from grants to marketing. They are delivered in a friendly manner with plenty of opportunity for Q&As both during and afterwards in the chat sessions. 

Here on our website we also have some training films, which you can watch and share, helping you to make the most of your amazing spaces. We also manage networking spaces, where you can share best practice or test ideas with others.
