We offer free online training for groups and churches.

Training can be customised to your group.

If you are starting a new group or wondering if training might help your existing group, our Regional Coordinators will be happy to orientate and help.

We provide three foundational training events: every session is effective and fun!

  • How to facilitate a small group discussion.
  • How to prepare a short wrap-up talk on a Bible passage.
  • How to be a CBS Group Coordinator
I’m very hopeful that we may have a couple more volunteers to put together a wrap up talk in the New Year, following your training!
- Kerry December 2023
I feel more equipped and have more of an idea of how to go about structuring my talk for next week!
- Annette December 2023
Thank you so much for the training this afternoon. It was really helpful, and actually it was a good reminder for me not to teach!
- Kerry, November 2023
I found today really helpful. There are some definite CBS nuances, and I haven't been in CBS training in what feels like a really long time.
- Coleen, November 2023
I did thoroughly enjoy it and absolutely learned new things as a DGL. So glad I took a Re-training course.
- Karen, November 2023
I found this afternoon very encouraging and empowering ... I feel empowered to emphasize an application and ONE learning point, which feels manageable.
- Anita, October 2023
I really feel much more prepared to be focused and methodical about preparing talks in the future.
- Susan, October 2023
... I found it extremely useful. Despite being less familiar with this part of CBS work than other people I am looking forward to using these skills.
- David, August 2023
I feel very blessed to have been able to participate. The way the training was done made me go from feeling a bit terrified to be responsible to teach God’s Word correctly and thoroughly to excited about getting to share what God reveals to me through His word.
- Michelle, June 2023
The talks training was very helpful. I reckon everyone should regularly update their training!
- Sandra, June 2023
A simple and effective method: explanation, illustration, and application.
- Fernando, June 2023
I just wanted to say it was lovely meeting you and thank you so much for the talk today. I really enjoyed it and you made it very understandable and easy.
- Helen
Thank you for the lovely teaching yesterday, it was very inspiring, formative and extremely useful for me. It’s been a long time since I taught. It was great refresher for me. You did a great job and taught us very well.
Thank you for facilitating the training for us. Waking up early in the morning (from another time zone) for that was really worth it for me.
- BC
Thank you so much for that training session – having started a very small group here I was struggling with the talks – focus on self… and this session has helped me so much to recapture the essence of what the wrap up talk is all about. It feels as if I’ve come home again.
Thank you very much for your enthusiastic and informative training this morning.
The training is exceptional, I am always blown away, delivery is impressive.
Having done CBS training before, it was great to see how the training materials have evolved and are up to date. I feel much better equipped for my role as a CBS leader.
