Event Details


Getting up to Speed. 

THIS HARD SKILLS INDUCTION DAY IS MANDATORY  FOR ALL RECENTLY ORDAINED  DEACONS IN THE DIOCESE.  Interested learners from the your parish/benefice are also welcome. 

This Introduction to the Hard Skills days is a follow-on from the Induction day and will include information about how to assemble a Ministry Development Folder (MDF), and will also explain the basis of Church of England Canon Law and English Law, that we use in the Hard Skills Programme for curates, and various other useful things as you begin your curacy. 

Tea and Coffee will be available throughout the day, but please remember to bring a packed lunch.

Arrival and sign-in from 09.30am for a 10.00am start

 ‘A variety of people are involved in lecturing and leading the Hard Skills days, including members of the diocesan legal team (the Chancellor, the Registrar, Chancellor emeritus etc), archdeacons, and a variety of different incumbents and other clergy and lay people, reflecting a cross section of traditions and a wide range of opinions (some of which may differ from your own). Curates are encouraged to engage across the spectrum of views to enhance their own learning and develop their own theological understanding as part of their lifelong ministerial formation now and in the future.’
