Nurturing our Growth
This programme will provide Clergy with a unique time and space, in the company of fellow Clergy, to take stock and refresh your purpose, resilience and energy as a minister. It will equip you with a set of insights and personal practices with which to nourish continually your own growth, both as a priest and a person, and the growth of others around you. People who have attended similar programmes in the past have described the effect as transformational – both for themselves and their wider ministry. The dates for the next two years’ Consultations are as follows:
28th January – 1st February 2019
27th January – 31st January 2020
In the Thinking God series each Consultation will focus on a key discipline within the field of theology. Led by experts in the field we will examine current thinking and review some of the best literature. This is an opportunity not only to refresh what you already know but also to engage with contemporary positions. The dates for the next three years’ Thinking God Consultations and their theme are as follows:
Belief Expressed Through Doctrine – 1st October – 5th October 2018
Hearing and Preaching the Old Testament – 7th October – 11th October 2019
Philosophy and Apologetics – 5th October – 9th October 2020
