Children’s leaders who are involved in Sunday School, Children’s Church, Kids’ Clubs or any other form of children’s ministry will benefit significantly from this course.

The course is an excellent opportunity for networking with others involved in children’s ministry, while being resourced and envisioned, trained and refreshed.

The course is held in Union Theological College on Monday evenings and runs for ten weeks. There is a weekly class commitment of two hours (7.30pm – 9.30pm).

A team of experienced lecturers deliver these highly practical courses which lead to the award of a Certificate in Children's Ministry. In addition to attending the weekly lectures the certificate will be awarded to those who successfully complete the coursework assignments.
