“DON’T PANIC” Small Group Facilitation Training

SU WA’s relational approach leads us to use small groups in many different ministry contexts. We encourage others to use this powerful transformational tool and offer training and a handbook that gives people the information and skills needed to lead small groups effectively.

First Aid

SU WA partners with Revive Emergency Medical Training to offer first aid training at a discounted price for current SU volunteers.

Revive runs courses on Fridays and Saturdays throughout the year – find a list of available dates here.

One-off training events

SU WA runs various one-off training events throughout the year. These include ministry and mission training that will equip you to serve in your local church, on an SU program, and beyond; as well as hard skills such as training for facilitating water activities on camps.

Leadership Development

Volunteer leaders are a key part of the ministry of SU WA and we invest significant energy and offer a range of training activities to develop them. We are particularly passionate about developing emerging young Christian leaders through programs, training and community, where they can learn and practice the information, character and skills needed for Christian leadership.
