Quite a number of people take up the important role of Churchwarden for the first time each year. For those, and other more experienced Wardens looking for a refresher, the Archdeacons hold a training event in each Archdeaconry once per year.
The two training courses for 2017 took place in June. Dates for 2018 will appear on this page.
The presentation used at the 2016 training events is a helpful resource.
Tthe Archdeacons also suggest this booklist (2013) for Churchwardens and PCC members - many of the books may be available second hand via the usual websites. You could also ask if previous wardens have a copies they could pass on to you.
The national Parish Resources website is agreat source of information for Churchwardens.
We recommend that Churchwardens apply for a CofE Portal account Once registered you have easy access to a number of useful tools and national church websites in one place.
