The Day

Saturday 6 March, 2021


When you have booked in, you will be sent all the information and links you will need to enjoy the whole day with us.  There will be a mixture of live-streamed hosting, worship and keynote speakers which you will be able to interact with, alongside some brand new workshop videos made especially for Joined Up going live during the day.

The day is aimed at anyone working with children, families or young people, whether in a church context, detached or schools-based.

The day each year is organised by a number of youth, children’s and schools workers across Sheffield, Doncaster, Rotherham, Wakefield and Leeds.  You can read more about them here.
