Online workshop: Running church groups online

February 6 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

 

Many parishes are seeing online groups as part of their long-term strategy, recognising that the downside of not being together in person is more than offset by increased accessibility of online groups. However it can feel like a minefield to get started. This workshop series will look at:

Week 1: Foundations (January 16th 10.30-12noon)

    • Who is your group for and what is its purpose
    • Pros and cons of online groups – what will work for you?
    • Help needed: finding co-hosts and moderators
    • A quick low-tech primer on online security
    • What are you going to do – choosing appropriate content
    • How to get people to come along

Week 2: Running a session (February 6th 10.30-12noon)

  • Leading your group: welcome and house rules
  • How to make your group interactive – using chat, breakout groups, showing videos etc
  • Maintaining mometum between meetings
  • Keeping everyone safe: confidentiality and disclosures
  • Leading prayer

 

The workshops are suitable for anyone looking to get groups going online. Week 2 will be helpful for any of the co-hosts and moderators that get recruited after week 1!
