The Course

The Catholic Youth Ministry Project is a three year course (2014-2016), comprising 9 modules in Youth Ministry which have been specially designed to equip and enable adult parishioners with specialist skills, training and knowledge to help develop a comprehensive youth ministry culture in their parishes.  There are currently 37 people registered on the course from 9 parishes across Bromley deanery. The course is facilitated and delivered by members of the Conforti institute. The content of the course has been adapted from Conforti and the Centre of Ministry Development's Youth Ministry Studies Programme which has been internationally recognised and developed from the American Bishop's Conference.
