VolTrain – Working with Young People with Autism and Aspergers

Voltrain logoAutism is a condition which seems to be on the increase, and we hear of more and more people being diagnosed. So what is it? And why can it look so different? How can you as youth workers support a young person with Autism? This workshop is here to offer some background on Autism and the latest thinking on the condition, also to help give you a wider picture on how this behaviour can be reflected in young people, and what we can do to help. Led by Jocey Twine, a Paediatric Occupational Therapist with 24 years’ experience, working in the NHS and private sector. VolTrain is a partnership between several organisations, including Bristol City Council, to equip, resource and train volunteer youth workers in the Bristol area. It is open to all volunteer youth workers across both statutory and voluntary sectors and is completely free. Paid workers may also attend if they are accompanying volunteers.

Godly Play Introductory Day

Tyndale Baptist Church Whiteladies Road, Bristol, United Kingdom
GP“In most religious education children are told who God is. In Godly Play children discover who God is.” Godly play is an approach based on Montessori principles – we respond to the child’s request to ‘help me do it by myself.’ This puts the teacher in the role of spiritual supporter or guide who fully accepts that each child has his or her own relationship with God already. The teaching takes place in different ways at the same time: it is multi-modal and multi-sensory.

Godly Play is a movement to influence the Churches’ support of spiritually rich practices with children and adults.

The Heart of Godly Play

  • Creating Sacred Space
  • Building and working in community
  • Learning religious language
  • Using religious language to make meaning
 A Godly Play session includes a time to:-
  • get ready
  • tell a story using objects and artefacts
  • explore the story more with open questions and discussion
  • respond with a free choice using a variety of materials – art… silence… play… writing…
  • enjoy a simple feast and sharing
The introductory day takes place on Saturday 19th November, 9.45am - 4pm at Tyndale Baptist Church, Whiteladies Road, Bristol, BS8 2QG. The day costs £30, which includes refreshments but please bring your own lunch. A minimum £10 deposit must be paid at the time of booking. For more information, or to book your place, please contact the CYM office in 01179 469 209 or email cymoffice@bristol-baptist.ac.uk

VolTrain: Working with Young People who Self-Harm

Voltrain logoIt is estimated that around 10% of young people self-harm at some point, and the reality is that not everyone seeks help, so this figure may well be higher. There are many different reasons why young people self-harm, and many different forms that self-harm can take. This workshop will explore some of the reasons young people self-harm, some of the ways you can identify when someone might be self-harming, and some of the ways you can support a young person who is self-harming. Led by Emma Duncan, BA Hons in Youth Work, MSc in Counselling. Emma has been working with young people for 20 years, first as a youth worker, then in vice and now as a counsellor and in education. VolTrain is a partnership between several organisations, including Bristol City Council, to equip, resource and train volunteer youth workers in the Bristol area. It is open to all volunteer youth workers across both statutory and voluntary sectors and is completely free. Paid workers may also attend if they are accompanying volunteers.

Prior to taking up this role in 2012, he was Assistant Dean of St Mellitus College. He was Head of Theology at the Evangelical Alliance from 1997-2006 and an Associate Research Fellow of the London School of Theology between 2000 and 2012. He joined the Church of England in 2002 and was an assistant minister in two London parishes before returning to Nottingham to lead St John’s. In addition to his duties at the college, he currently serves on the ministry team of St Luke’s, Gamston. David has written and edited several books, including Picking up the Pieces (Hodder), The Nature of Hell, One Body in Christ: The History and Significance of the Evangelical Alliance (with Ian Randall), ‘Toronto’ in Perspective, God and the Generations: Youth, Age and the Church Today (with Matt Bird), Movement for Change: Evangelicals and Social Transformation (all Paternoster) and The Atonement Debate (with Derek Tidball and Justin Thacker - Zondervan). David enjoys cricket, rock, folk, film and poetry. He also loves New York City! ***** Jane Butcher works for Bible Reading Fellowship where she is the Children and Family Ministry team leader which incorporates Faith in Homes. She also oversees the Barnabas in Schools team and is a Messy Church regional co-ordinator. Having originally trained as a teacher, Jane later worked within Children and Family ministry in the USA and UK before joining BRF in 2007. Her passion/desire is that people of all ages and backgrounds have the opportunity to experience the full richness of life and within that can understand how faith and daily life walk hand in hand through the joys and challenges. Much of BRF’s work is supporting churches to engage with and support those in their church and community. As part of this work, Jane is involved with a variety of networks such as Children’s Ministry Network (formerly CGMC), Children Matter, Global Family Alliance, the Methodist Church and Church of England. In her ‘spare’ time, she enjoys spending time with family, friends, travelling and watching cookery programmes – dreaming of one day when her creations will look vaguely the same!
