Want to know more about your Kirk? Its formation and governance? Who makes the decisions? What part do we play? How best to work with children?
The Congregational Learning Team at the The Church of Scotland has been busy developing some very useful online learning resources.
Office Bearers Online Resources page (www.churchofscotland.org.uk/officebearers)
This much sought after resources page covers the sheer scope of being office bearers in the Church of Scotland. Consisting of three main sections (‘Formation of the Kirk’, ‘Governance of the Kirk’ and ‘Practice in the Kirk’) and twenty two sub-sections, this page provides both theoretical, historical and practical information and extensive links for further exploration. Please do visit and explore the page. Full overviews of all topics are available as printable PDF files at the end of each page.
Children and Youth Online Resources (www.churchofscotland.org.uk/childrenandyouth)
Another long waited and much sought after resources page is finally live, offering lots of information, resources and ideas for shaping our churches ministry with children and youth. This page is thoughtfully sectioned for Leaders, Church, Community, Young Adults and Events. It will signpost to resources and information, develop learning and equip with skills those working with children and youth. Do have a look and share with others who might be interested.
