Resources to assist in the development and mentoring of preachers, from our September 2021 preachers’ training event.

How to use this resource

There are 6 videos, each around 30 minutes, with notes if you prefer to read while you watch.

These resources can used in a variety of ways:

  • As a course, with a small group of people being trained together, with a facilitator (for example, plan four 60 minute sessions – after an introductory session watch 2 videos each time and then meet, discuss and agree actions)
  • For one-to-one use, a trainee may watch a video or two, and then meet with a mentor to discuss.
  • Or, videos can be watched singly, to gain on-demand training for a specific matter, or to ‘fill in gaps’ in a trainee’s understanding.
