Choose your Workshops
The Bible Weekend programme has space for two or three workshops. You can tailor your workshop choices to suit the mission priorities for your parish. If you want to focus your workshops on people already in ministry like catechists, readers, liturgists, then you can. If you want to focus on children, young people and families, then you can. If you want a broad approach to reach as many parishioners as possible, then you can. We have a wide range of workshop choices listed here but if you don't see what you are looking for then get in touch, we can probably create a workshop just for you.
