The Mobilisation workshop offers a different set-up from other workshops. Primarily, it offers experiential education through a variety of key learning activities in different locations. Additionally, it is a longer workshop with a smaller group than usual, so there is a special opportunity to bond and build friendships for life.
It starts with a kick-off workshop for team building, and then local service projects to offer something for others and have a taste of what it means to serve selflessly. The next activity is a fundraising training period. This provides a healthy challenge and invaluable training for self-discipline, determination and much more – giving you, as a participant, many opportunities for internal reflection and growth. This year, we are adjusting the schedule to have an extra day of team activities and less fundraising training. We will then conclude the workshop with the “Mountain Challenge”. This is a novel and exciting final activity we have decided to add this year, which will be a great way to end the Mobilisation together, experiencing the breath-taking nature of the Austrian Alps.
The workshop is for all those who are looking for a more varied experience of developing your relationship with God through service, fundraising and mountain challenge. Please be aware that spaces are limited, so apply soon.
Please note that the workshop fulfils one of the educational qualification (participation in extended education) to attend the Blessing.
Registration is closed, the workshop is full!
