We run regular Level 1 courses online. There is small fee to register, and an opportunity to contribute to the growth of sports chaplaincy by sponsoring the training for others.
We are always happy to discuss presenting our Level 1 Training on site with any of our existing and prospective partner churches.
You can also arrange an online session specifically for your church community.
