Our main venue will be Central Baptist Church, 190 Church Street, Palmerston North.  We will also use Gateways Christian Fellowship, at 174 Church Street, for some workshops.

Parking will be available on the street, and we ask you to carpool as much as possible.  You get a great opportunity to connect with people from your parish or those nearby, to share your learnings on the journey home, and to care for creation by keeping our carbon footprint to a minimum!

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, in the Central Baptist Church hall.

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

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.  Can’t print on A5 paper?  Use this A4 version with 2x fliers per page.

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 and will be served in the Central Baptist Church hall.  We’ll also serve tea and coffee on arrival, and at lunchtime, and you can also purchase barista-made coffee from our diocesan baristas in the cafe space, in the hall.  We encourage you to bring your own re-usable mug.  This is a great space to hang out with friends from across the diocese and swap notes from the workshops.

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.

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.
