Our Christian Mentoring course has been so popular that we’ve decided to launch another one for November 2019. Thank you for the demand for this course – we’re looking forward to meeting you all! Our courses in Poole are now fully booked and are no longer being advertised, so we have launched a further date to be held in Birmingham this autumn. The details of the course are listed below, including the application form.

Now a regular short course on the Moorlands College calendar, Certificate in Christian Mentoring is specifically designed to support church leaders, youth workers, children’s workers and anyone else who helps others move forward in their lives. Run in partnership with Catalyst Training and The Greenhouse Christian Centre, this course will equip your work with all age groups, by helping you understand an individual’s needs, identify what they want to do, and give them the tools to move forward.
