As mentioned in November’s image news our course in Christian pregnancy counselling skills takes place over 5 Saturdays starting 7th February (London) and 31st January (Manchester).
The course aims to explore the basic counselling skills and information areas needed to help people with problems relating to pregnancy, abortion, post abortion and teenage sex from within a Christian framework. Its purpose is to provide a foundation for all those working, or seeking to work, in Christian pregnancy centres and related areas of ministry. The course is accompanied by a training manual which will be a valuable resource for individuals, churches and centres.
The course provides accreditation with Open Awards in Christian pregnancy skills at level two and level three. Levels two and three are also recognised by the Association of Christian Counsellors.
The course runs from January/February to May/June each year on one Saturday in each month (a total of five days’ attendance) and includes reading and assessment work. Full dates for the 2015 Manchester and London Courses are shown on the website. Please click on the links on the website to download the information leaflet and application form – or contact the image office.
If you know of anyone who might be interested in supporting those struggling with pregnancy decisions or after abortions then please let them know about the course. We are recruiting men as well as women. We also have posters available for download (or from the office) if you could advertise the course in your church bulletin or on the notice board.
