How to Lead a Small Group 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.

If this is something that would add value to you or your connect group, please reach out to us.

First Aid

Royal Life Saving WA provides Provide First Aid training for $109 per person- we outsource this as it's more cost effective. You can find out more info and sign up here- this is the qualification we require of First Aiders on SU programs.

You can also register for a CPR requal here or a full Provide CPR course here if you would like (remembering that this isn't a required SU qualification).


Journey Program

What youth ministry leaders need most isn’t simply more easy answers to problems, more conferences and more impersonal training, but a relationship through which the youth ministry leader can be held accountable, be encouraged, and be helped to put their learnings into practice. The SU Journey program seeks to provide that relationship.

Who:  Those who are responsible for a Youth Ministry (although we may accept some Youth Leaders)
When:  Feb – Dec 2019, at the convenience of the mentor and the Youth Ministry Leader

MAD (Make A Difference) Workshop

We believe there is a need for Christian students to explore more deeply why followers of Jesus love and serve others. We want to build their understanding of what effective aid and development work looks like and increase their engagement in local and global mission.
