Intergenerational Ministry

24th-27th January 2022 (Online)

This 4-day module will help you develop an understanding of why we should be building intergenerational communities – exploring the benefits and challenges of this approach.


We will explore a theology of family and multi-age community, how young people can authentically participate in their communities and whether age-segregated practices still have a place in church.

If you choose to submit the assignment you will get a certificate of achievement from CYM, levelled pass, merit or distinction as well as more detailed feedback on your marked assessment.

No, unfortunately not this year. CYM is changing its validation to Newman University for 2021, and our previous partner is not able to accept new registrations. It might be possible to formally submit your assignment in future years and get credit then, as a stand alone module, or as part of a CYM BA or MA course, but we are not able to guarantee that.

A successful assignment will serve as an equivalent qualification to enter our BA or MA course next year, subject to other application procedures, and other colleges might accept this, but you will need to check with them.

Level 4 is the equivalent of 1st year of a BA course.
Level 7 is the equivalent of an MA module.

We use Trent Vineyard’s conferencing facilities, and they take Covid security very seriously. We will provide specific details and information ahead of your course when specific procedures are known.

It is possible that some of the courses will move online if we are not able to run them face to face, but that will vary for each module. You will be advised as early as possible of any adjustments.

Trent Vineyard is easy to get to by car and public transport. Their web site gives directions and you will be given more details ahead of the course about reaching it by public transport. There is a tram stop very close.

You will need to make your own arrangements for food and drink. There is a cafe on site (subject to Covid restrictions) which sells drinks and light lunches. There are shops and a burger van nearby if you are driving. Otherwise you should bring your own food.

You will need to make your own arrangements if you are needing to stay overnight. The centre is easily accessible by public transport which opens up a range of hotels and other accommodation options in the city.
