How can our training equip and support you?
We offer training both to CBS classes and also to churches who would like to use our material in the context of their own structures.
Our aim is to meet leaders’ training needs as soon as possible after they have been identified, for example:
- When a new class is starting
- When people take on a new role
- When someone identifies a training need or opportunity.
There are three main sessions
- Class Leadership Roles – what are they and what’s involved? (about 1 hour)
- Discussion Group Leading – how to facilitate a small group discussion. (about 1.5 hours)
- Wrap-up Talks – how to prepare a short wrap-up talk on a Bible passage (about 1.5 hours)
We have additional training sessions and other training tools so training is effective and fun.
We aim to deliver the training as close to the leader’s location as possible, at a convenient time.
We don’t charge for materials or training! Nearly all of us volunteer our time and skills but we depend entirely on donations to cover expenses.

What do they say?:
From the training of a new class in Manchester, Oct 2016:
We do thank God for the great ministry of CBS. The training last Saturday was a great blessing to us and our group was able to take full advantage: everyone was very happy with it. It was very useful and we were all challenged to get started straight away each one with a new group.
The team you sent was absolutely first class.
From a 2015 Training Day:
“….it was the best training yet. I loved the new style and it has definitely gone up a notch. All the hard work you and your team have put into it has paid dividends.”
“Thank you for your excellent training on Saturday. God has given you a gift of teaching and I found it very helpful to learn the CBS techniques of study, and discussion leadership.”
