The Lifecare Course consists of two, 15-hour trainings which are for anyone who wants to:
As a course participant, you have the opportunity to learn these specialised skills, then practice them with other participants in three-person triad groups where you take turns as Lifecarer, Client, and Observer. These will help you apply the new skills you’ve learned in a real-life setting, and develop a deeper walk with Jesus as you work through real issues in your life.
Some graduates of the course continue in their regular ministry/sphere of influence and use their new Lifecare skills informally with people in their lives and ministry areas. In this case then you only need to sign up for the first two sessions of Lifecare training – a total of 15 hours
The first 2 sessions of training will cover:
Others who go through the Lifecare course may feel called to serve missionally in a more formal, volunteer pastoral role on Central’s Lifecare ministry team. This team is supervised under the Care ministry.

If you think you might be called to serve as a part of Central’s Lifecare ministry team, then you’ll need to attend all four sessions of Lifecare Training – a total of 30 hours.
The second 2 sessions of training will include:
