Getting the Best out of People

The really useful guide to management & supervision of volunteers & staff

Speaker: Jason Royce is the Director of Souster Youth and has been learning to manage and supervise others for over 15 years in local authority, church, and charity settings.

Whilst the vital stuff of management is often squeezed out by many competing demands and high workloads of church leadership, doing it well can be transformational. Focussed and efficient supervision sessions with those you do ministry alongside can pay back tenfold the time you put in, helping your church to achieve far more. During this training we’ll also give you clear strategies for having difficult conversations and moving past blockages that often hold back progress when managing others.

We’ll cover: The who, what/how, when, where, and why of supervision; How to have a difficult conversation/manage conflict; Learning from others in the room as we share our experiences.

Deepening Discipleship

The Enigma of Forgiveness with Stephen Cherry

Forgiveness is one of the central words of Christianity, and many Christians feel it is always good to forgive. There are, however, occasions when it is not simply a black and white matter. This is a day of discussion and reflection on the different aspects of forgiveness in order to develop a deeper understanding of when forgiveness is appropriate.

The Contemplative Heart

With Ian Cowley

The Holy Spirit leads us to bring our restless and wayward hearts to the ever-loving heart of God. We learn that being comes before doing, and that ‘who I am before God’ is far more important than ‘how much I am doing?’ When we find our peace and security in Jesus, we are enabled ‘to walk by the Spirit and not gratify the desires of the flesh’ (Galatians 5:16).
