Our training, now in its fourth year, aims to equip churches and pastoral care workers to better understand and support people struggling with addiction and the issues they are facing on their recovery journey.

It is best experienced as a whole course, but can also be booked as standalone sessions. They all run from 9.30am to 12.30pm, with coffee being served from 9.15am.

We ask for a voluntary donation of £5 per session which will go towards the work of Life Recovery Group.

You can book your place here. Or call 07557 056462 to let us know you're coming.
