The Trans-European Division (TED) and Inter-European Division (EUD) Family Ministries departments have collaborated to host monthly webinars for leaders and families.

During a joint Family Ministries Advisory in October 2020, leaders from across both Divisions suggested a range of topics that would be useful to their own ministry and to the families in their fields. Recordings of these webinars are now available for anyone to watch at any time. So, if you would like to enrich your learning, your ministry, your family life, and your relationships, you can click on the links below for inspiration, ideas and practical tips.

In May 2021, the former TED Health Ministries director, Dr Helgi Jónsson, who is a psychiatrist working in Iceland, presented a two-part workshop on Mental Health. His webinars gave a very helpful overview of mental health and how to support those who are experiencing different kinds of mental illness. Both part 1 and part 2 can be found TED Family Ministries Resources page.
