Saturday 11th May 2019, Samuel Marsden Collegiate School, Karori, Wellington

This event is for all teams and their leaders – including Vestry members, wardens, children’s ministry volunteers, youth workers, those who serve the cups of tea, clergy, those in lay ministry… if you are part of a team that serves in your church, you’re invited to Team Training Day – there’s something here for you!

We hold two training days every year, one in the north of the diocese and one in the south – but each one is different.  The day is full of useful workshops across a spectrum of topics, from governance and leadership to prayer, ministry and social justice topics.

Some workshops are repeated at each event so more people can attend them, but the majority of topics are fresh offerings from a whole range of speakers.  And ensuring the day is infused with a fantastic atmosphere of fellowship and whānau, we gather as a church family to worship, pray and hear from our bishops, with plenty of time over lunch to hang out, get to know each other and enjoy great food and coffee.

Spread the word amongst your teams: share this event to your parish or team Facebook pages, print out this poster (PDF format) and put it up on your noticeboards, print off some of these fliers (PDF format) and include them in your pewsheets, and include this PowerPoint slide (.png format) in your church notices.

Printable guide to Team Training Day

All the relevant information on this website will be displayed in poster form all over the venue on the day.  However if you like to have a printable guide with you on the day, we’ll publish one here closer to the day.

No RSVP is required. Just gather together others from your parish teams – whether you lead a ministry or just help out once in a while, you’re invited.

Team Training Day will be held at Samuel Marsden Collegiate School, Marsden Avenue, Karori, Wellington.

Parking: is very restricted on-site.  We strongly recommend public transport or carpooling.

  • If you need to park on-site for mobility reasons, or you are a speaker and need to drop off materials for a workshop, please make yourself known to a parking warden at any street entrance to the school and they will assist you to find a park.
  • If you are being dropped off, feel free to use the Marsden Avenue entrance – which is right next to Reception, where the day will start.
  • If you are driving and parking your car, please allow extra time to park in the surrounding streets and walk.  The former teachers’ college campus in Donald Street is no longer available due to demolition.

Public transport: Catch the #2 bus to Karori from Lambton Quay (opposite the Supreme Court) at 8:01am or 8:31am, and hop off at Marsden Village.  Walk a bit further to 175 Karori Road, where there is a pedestrian entrance to the school opposite St Mary’s Anglican Church.  The adult cash fare is $5.

If you are from out of town, you can “park and ride” and many major railway stations in the Wellington region, then catch a train to Wellington Station and walk the short distance to Lambton Quay to catch the bus to Karori.  Trains only accept cash fares on-board, unless you have pre-purchased a ticket beforehand.

Check out metlink.org.nz for full timetable and fare information.

Event kick-off: The event will commence in the school’s main Reception area, in Te Manawa o te Kura – directly accessible from the Marsden Avenue entrance.  Follow the RECEPTION signs from each entrance of the school.

A koha is requested as a contribution towards the cost of the day.  You can offer this in cash, or via EFTPOS in the cafe space at Team Training Day.

Here, you’ll find resources to promote Team Training Day to your parish.

Banners

Use one of these banners to include in your parish communications – social media, parish newsletters, websites etc.  We know some of you print in colour, some in black and white – so here are a range of options to suit.

Poster and fliers

Use this A4 poster for your church noticeboards, and this A5 flier to hand to parishioners – or to put in with your parish newsletter.

Projector slide

Use this slide in your PowerPoint or other projection software to advertise during your notices or announcements.

Lunch is provided for the day.  We’ll also serve tea and coffee on arrival, and you can also purchase barista-made coffee from our diocesan baristas in the school reception area.  We encourage you to bring your own re-usable mug, or purchase your own Anglican Movement-branded cup to keep.

For lunch, there will be vegetarian, gluten-free and dairy-free options, however if you have other specific dietary needs, you are requested to bring your own.

Over lunch, feel free to enjoy the many beautiful spaces around the school grounds, either as you catch up with friends or just enjoy some solitary time to think and pray.

Please note: the baristas will accept payment by EFTPOS, and you can also offer your koha in this way.  You can pay using cash, but change will not be available – so consider this an efficient way to pay for your coffee and offer a koha at the same time!  You can see the Koha section for more information.
