Facilitator Training Materials

  • In a project funded by the Allchurches Trust, the ERTP has put together a pack of Facilitator Training Materials which are designed to help those who wish to be or who already are facilitators of Christian Groups to develop their skills. They were launched at the Annual Forum on 24 February, 2014 and are now available to download.

Regional Inter-Denominational Learning Communities

As part of its commitment to creative training in the region, ERTP is sponsoring the launch of Inter-Denominational Learning Communities for rural church members. This exciting new project, run in conjunction with the Arthur Rank Centre, aims to give participants a real opportunity to think, pray and plan together, with the overall goal of discerning and bringing new growth in rural settings.

The first Learning Community event, for members of small churches, will take place on 29-30 January 2015, with subsequent events in June 2016, January 2017 and June 2017. At each event, teams of four participants drawn from ERTP partners will meet to develop church strategy and mission, considering the broad themes of journey, leadership, discipleship and mission.  Team members may be lay or ordained, and will be allocated an ‘accompanier’ from their denomination, who will help prepare the team and support its progress.
