The Forge

Back to events and training

The Forge Gathering is a residential retreat for local children's, youth and families' leaders (both paid and voluntary) hosted by Rachel Turner and the Parenting for Faith team.

What are the goals of The Forge?

The goals of The Forge remain unchanged and are to provide time to:

  • worship and reflect
  • hear about new developments in children's, youth and families work
  • learn from each other
  • have fun together!

It's a fantastic opportunity to meet others working in the same field as you, and you'll leave with loads of contacts and some great new friends.

When is it?

Dates are still being finalised but we hope to run two events in 2021. One online 9 - 10 June and one in November in The Peak District (subject to government restrictions, this may also move online).

What does it cost?

£150 for in person gatherings which covers everything including food, accommodation and activities. £35 for online gatherings.

Booking will open shortly.
