Over the last twenty years, CMCS has established itself as a prime provider of continuing professional development training which focuses on issues and needs in ministers and their families.
Each year we arrange a Saturday
Workshop, repeated on several dates to enable as many as possible to attend.
These Workshops are open to all interested counsellors, but with a priority booking period and reduced fee for those who are members of the CMCS Register of counsellors.
