- Evangelising children: the big picture – Thalia Blundell & Rory Bell
What does the Bible say about children and the gospel? Who should evangelise children and how should we do it?

- The long haul – Dave Fenton
Is youth ministry a short-term stopgap in my career path or a life-long calling? Where do I go from here?

- Preparing our children and young people for persecution (Part 1) – Trevor Pearce
“The world dreams of progress, of power and the future, but the disciples meditate on the end, the last judgement and the coming kingdom. To such heights the world cannot rise. And so the disciples are strangers in the world, unwelcome guests and disturbers of the peace. No wonder the world rejects them." – Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Is he right? And if so, how can we prepare the next generation of young people to be strong enough to face being strangers, unwelcome guests and disturbers of the peace – in other words true disciples of Christ? Come along and find out.

Wednesday Seminars

- Supporting parents of teenagers – Ann Benton
Many parents wish they could fast-forward the teenage years. For some the relationship with their offspring is either silent or stormy. Worldly parental ambitions frequently compete with the deep seated desire of most Christian parents to see their children come through for Christ. How can youth workers be on-side with the parents of teenagers they work with?

- The Sex-Factor Obsession – Jonathan Berry (True Freedom Trust)
Our young people are growing up in an increasingly sexualised culture, their moral framework informed more by the media than the Bible. How do we encourage them to see God not as killjoy but as the perfect giver of the gift of sex, and equip them to express their sexuality in a godly way?

- Getting the message across to 3-11s – Sue Fearon & Helen Buckley
How can we communicate biblical truth to children aged 3-11 in ways which meet their learning needs? The session is highly practical, incorporating demonstrations of several popular methods and an opportunity to examine materials and ask questions. It will stimulate those who teach children regularly, introduce less experienced childrenʼs workers to a wide range of ideas and give ideas how all age talks can be delivered to reach younger children at the same time as adults/young people.

- Am I part of the church? – Dave Fenton
Unfortunately, this seminar wasn't recorded.

- Preparing our children and young people for persecution (Part 2) – Trevor Pearce
“The world dreams of progress, of power and the future, but the disciples meditate on the end, the last judgement and the coming kingdom. To such heights the world cannot rise. And so the disciples are strangers in the world, unwelcome guests and disturbers of the peace. No wonder the world rejects them." – Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Is he right? And if so, how can we prepare the next generation of young people to be strong enough to face being strangers, unwelcome guests and disturbers of the peace – in other words true disciples of Christ? Come along and find out.

- Young people in a consumer culture – John Benton
Business and the media have a vested interest in turning young people into fledgling materialists with an outlook of 'choose, buy and ownʼ. But such values are at odds with many of Christ's ways and do spiritual damage to your youth group. How can leaders both teach and model contentment instead of consumerism for the rising generation?

- Homosexuality: Clarity and Compassion – Jonathan Berry (True Freedom Trust)
What hope does the gospel hold out to young people in our churches struggling with same-sex attraction or identifying as gay or lesbian? We'll explore the causes of homosexuality, take a look at what the Bible really says and consider some practical ways of caring pastorally for those who struggle.

- Being wise about special needs – Steve Midgley
Reflecting on some of the ways churches can engage young people with disabilities.

- Schools work – Ian Fry
This seminar will have two parts, so you can slip in and out for the part you're interested in.
Part 1—Starting Out in Schools Work. All that you need to know from contacting a school to what to offer.
Part 2—Developing a lesson Series. How to use a local "Agreed syllabus" and use the Bible in lessons.

- One Day Wonders: Running one-off events for the whole family – Tamar Pollard & Tim Thornborough
Family events can be a great way to get to know the families of children in your groups. And also an opportunity for church families to invite friends and neighbours. Here are plenty of exciting suggestions and practical tips for a gospel-centred event for the whole family.
