Bishops’ Training Morning Resources

The Bishops hold regular training events throughout the year for all ministers (Clergy, Elders, Readers and Licenced Lay Ministers). 

The sessions for 2019 will be held at Salvation Army Hall, Violet Hill, Stowmarket and this year will all look at phrases in our Diocesan Vision and Strategy. 

Saturday 4 May:  9.00am – 12.30pm  Flourishing Congregations: what do flourishing congregations look like and what steps might we take as ministers to provide the best environment and opportunities for congregations to flourish?

Saturday 5 October: 9.00am – 12.30pm  Making a Difference: what kind of difference does it make to live our lives as Christians on our own and together and what distinctive contribution are we seeking to make in living out our faith?

More information about booking will be advertised nearer the time.
