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.

Looking with Fresh Eyes

Speakers: Members of the Cathedral Community

Our churches are often full of windows, paintings, and other items reflecting both the richness of our Christian tradition and the history of our faith. How can we best use these treasures to engage with our communities?

Join members of the cathedral community on a day exploring the treasures of Peterborough Cathedral, with discussions and best practice tips for our own church buildings. There will also be an opportunity for a special 'behind the scenes' tour of the cathedral - please wear sturdy shoes!

About Peterborough Cathedral: The cathedral is one of the few 12th century buildings to have remained largely intact. The building has many important architectural features and is also the burial place for Catherine of Aragon.
