Enabling youth leaders to care well for young people who are dealing with difficult issues.

Professional, Personal, Biblical and Practical

Training from The Big House features:

Professional expertise – drawing on the knowledge and experience of professionals, on research and examples of best practice
Personal experience – listening to and learning from the stories of people who have been through the issue
Biblical reflection – exploring how God speaks into the issue and how following Jesus shapes and empowers our response
Practical advice – take home ideas for you, your group or your church, which are achievable and effective

Our training is designed for youth leaders but other adults, such as parents, teachers and church leaders, often find it helpful and are very welcome too.

For programmes designed for young people, see our Workshops.

“It is fantastic that Big House is willing to talk openly about issues that are so significant but that are too often kept hidden in church circles.”

Training Videos

We want as many people as possible to be equipped to help young people, so we record and share as much of it as we can. (We don’t share everything online, so it’s well worth attending training events!)

Advice and Support

If you know a young person who is struggling with a difficult issue and you don’t know how to help them, give us a call or email us, we will be happy to have a chat with you.
