Since its foundation, the House has run a variety of Clergy Consultations. Now, attracting Clergy from different denominations and ministerial experience, the House runs three kinds of Consultation. Clergy with at least five years’ ministerial experience are invited to apply.
God: Some Conversations – How Do You Speak About God?
Lasting ten days the purpose of this Consultation is to consider how best to speak about God in the face of the issues facing the contemporary world. The dates for this year’s Consultation are 4-14 July and next year’s are 3-13 July 2023.
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 next year’s Consultation are 23-27 January 2023.
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 title for this year’s Consultation is The Grammar of Obedience: Christian Ethics in a Postliberal Age and the dates are 10-14 October.
Clergy are invited to apply for a place no more than 18 months prior to the start date. Application forms can be requested by emailing [email protected].
The Clergy Consultation Directing Staff are The Right Reverend David Conner, Canon Dr Hueston Finlay Canon Martin Poll and Canon Dr Mark Powell.
