Training & development sessions

Throughout the year, the Church Buildings Team offer a number of training sessions to churches on a range of matters regarding managing and caring for your church building and churchyard. These can be found in the calendar.

If you would like us to offer a specific subject matter or come to your church or deanery to run a session then please contact us on churches@cofe-worcester.org.uk
