    This Circuit Stewards Training Day was planned for Saturday 18 April 2020  to cover modules 3 and 4 of the course. Due to the safety measures of social distancing and isolation, this course has been rescheduled until after the crisis.

    The role of Circuit Steward is one of the key lay ministries in Methodism and so deserves the best support and training possible to do the work effectively.

    The new handbook and induction course, along with the Creating Safe Spaces Foundation Module, provide information and learning for new Circuit Stewards but also offer ongoing learning and reflection for existing Circuit Stewards as a means of Continuous Professional Development. Reading materials to accompany this course can be found on the Connexional Website.

    There is no charge for this event, and lunch is provided, which will cater for a variety of dietary needs. Please register on Eventbrite. For any further information please contact Lorraine Darlow darlowl@methodistchurch.org.uk
