Residential evangelism training

“I appreciated their clear presentation of the Gospel and their step-by-step approach to learning a good technique… They also have a treasure trove of tricks and good advice for working on the streets, with children and in family services.”

We’ve been evangelising on the streets of Britain since 1963, which give us well over half a century of experience at the sharp edge. So if you’re interested in learning open-air evangelism, or just want to hone your existing skills, we offer the benefit of our experience through a training course called Streetwise.

Streetwise is a very practical residential evangelism training course which takes place over 5 days; for 2017, it’s being offered in Cardiff. However, if it suits you better, Streetwise is also offered as a monthly course  – delivered one Saturday a month from January to June, usually in London.
