As we continue to be unable to meet as a whole church family due to the Covid-19 restrictions and guidelines, we are really excited to be offering alternative ways for you to come together as smaller groups of people to engage with a range of training opportunities. Each of the courses will run over 3-4 weeks; having a range of themes and times in the week on offer to try and provide suitable options for members of Cornerstone's family in their individual and different circumstances.
Most of these training sessions will be face to face gatherings in our building on Ramilies Road so that we can connect more with one another, but with the Covid-19 guidelines followed to ensure we do so safely. As we are aware that some of our family are voluntarily shielding at the current time, we will be in touch about specific provision for those of you in this situation, but please get in touch with us if you think we may not be aware that you are in this category.
As a result of the guidelines in place, we are limiting numbers on these courses and pre-registration on the form below is strongly encouraged to ensure you get a place! Social distancing will be in place, full and appropriate cleaning of the rooms used will be completed each time a session takes place and we will be requiring participants to wear a face mask.
