How to plan a Sunday session

1 April 2024

A free training video to use with your children's or youth team to explore God-connection.

Children’s and youth teams thrive on volunteers who gradually develop the skills and confidence to take on various aspects of leadership. Whether you’re a leader wanting to encourage your helpers to grow in leadership, or a helper wanting some guidance on how to plan their session or segment from scratch, Parenting for Faith is here to help.

This is a 10-minute training video that you can use with your team to upskill them as they go from merely assisting to leading a segment to leading an entire session. Presented by Becky Sedgwick, it is accompanied by handouts to help you and your volunteers as you discuss this issue.

There are many ways you could use this video:

  • organise an in-person training event (perhaps over Sunday lunch after church, or one evening with pizza), show this video and use the questions on the handout to initiate discussion
  • gather your team over Zoom, show the video and discuss
  • send the video link to your team via WhatsApp or similar, ask for their thoughts
  • send the video link out, then meet up (either in person or over Zoom) to hear people’s thoughts
