I'm not sure how to describe SPEC. I think it's kind of the Diocesan youth ministry - but there is a lot more to it. I got an email about this conference today - it sounds like fun.

This is a day for those involved in work with children and young adults, and who wish to explore further the professional and practical aspects of their ministry further. Seminars and workshops range from Child Protection procedures, and risk assessment, to adolescent faith development, and evangelising young people.
