We want to every young person attending Contagious to be faithfully taught life changing truth from the Bible and equip them to live for Jesus. Therefore, we expect every leader to attend one of our training days.
Ideally, it would be great to attend the training day of the event you hope to attend, however you may attend a training day of a similar conference in a different region.
We develop our skills in youth ministry, provide an overview of the teaching material, study the small group material and receive essential guidance to properly care for the young people and each other. We also have the opportunity to build friendships, plan activities and encourage each other in our own Christian walk.
Look below to find the training day dates/venues for 2024.
*These will be updated for next year but use the materials below to get an idea of what the material is like.
Contagious Bible Ministries leadership recognises the need to provide a safe and caring environment for all delegates. It also acknowledges that delegates can be the victims of physical, sexual and emotional abuse and neglect and sometimes those experiences come to light whilst at Contagious. The Contagious Core Team has put in place procedures set out in our Safeguarding Policy. It also recognises the need to build constructive links with statutory and voluntary Safeguarding agencies. The policy with its practice guidelines has been checked and approved by Christian Safeguarding Services (CSS) who support Contagious with our safe recruitment, training and advice.

TEAM with children
For TEAM who are bringing young children (preschool age) with them we have some guidelines to provide support for these leaders.
We’re also able to offer a small discount for TEAM who are sending their children on the Conferences as delegates.
