Renaissance Ministry Programme (1st of 2)
- Course Dates: Mon 1 December 2014, 12:30 pm to Wed 3 December 2014, 2:00 pm
This programme is ideal if you have been in stipendiary parochial ministry for a number of years, and are beginning to think about how to shape your ministry for the next phase.
With retirement for many now looking as if it may be 70, what does it mean to be in parochial ministry for the long haul?
This programme is sponsored by the Regional Training Partnership, Transition in Ministry Team (TIM) – including the dioceses of Bath & Wells, Bristol, Guildford, Oxford, Portsmouth, Salisbury and Winchester, but is also open to wider participation.
We shall provide an opportunity for you to reflect on your ministry since your ordination, so that you can become more aware of those aspects of ministry that renew you and those that drain you; reflect on your original vocation to ordained ministry: does it continue to sustain you or does it need re-appraising in the light of experience?; think about new skills you might like to develop for the next phase of your ministry and think about your lifestyle as a minister and plan for its future sustainability.
These residential sessions will provide an opportunity to think and pray together about vocation and ministry, to share in the worship of the cathedral and to make plans for further learning.
