Learn to Listen – Saturday 7th May

Many of our parishes have expressed a concern that children and young people are often absent from their churches. The question of how to regain the youth or children’s ministry that was once enjoyed is often asked of our Diocesan officers. It is clear that we cannot know how to move forward unless we are able to ask that question of those we wish to serve; to have a conversation. To help us learn how to listen to our children and young people, the diocese is hosting a Learn to Listen training day on May 7th at Singleton Village Hall, Ashford.
It will be a day to learn from Tony Cook the author of the Learn to Listen toolkit, l2l logowho was very well received at the Diocesan Synod in March 2015. Tony hopes to help everyone who comes to feel confident in both running the Learn to Listen toolkit but also in understanding why it is so important!
We hope to inspire everyone who comes to take the toolkit and put it to use in their communities to begin a conversation with our children and young people about God and faith.
The cost of the day is £5 per person which will include a fish and chip lunch (vegetarian options are available). To book your place please visit:
