Body: 

In spite of medical breakthroughs, the HIV epidemic continues to be one of the major challenges facing South Africa.

The church of God is strategically placed to reach out to those in need. The CABSA Churches, Channels of Hope programme empowers faith communities to respond competently and comprehensively to the challenges of the HIV epidemic.

CABSA will be hosting a facilitators training in the Churches Channels of Hope programme, to equip faith leaders in the Western Cape to present workshops and information sessions and to be able to guide their local faith communities towards HIV competence.

Outcomes of this training

On successful completion, participants will be:

• Equipped with thorough (scientific) knowledge on HIV and AIDS related topics and issues;
• Enriched and challenged to explore a Christian response to the challenges of HIV and AIDS;
• Empowered with facilitation skills and guidelines;
• Motivated to be a Channel of Hope.

CABSA is applying for continuous professional development points (VBO punte) for pastors from the DRC.

This is a seven-day training. As pastors often report that it is difficult to be away from their congregations for a full week, CABSA decided to do this training over two “blocks”. Please note that both sessions are compulsory in order to complete the training and evaluation.

Dates: 09-11 May 2017 & 27-30 June 2017 (Both blocks Compulsory)

Time: 08:30 – 16:30

Venue: Helderberg DRC (Joppa Hall)
