This event provides an opportunity to identify bad listening and learn what good listening entails.

About this event

Level 1

Over two half-days, via Zoom, participants will learn an effective and safe method of listening that will enhance their ability to bring healing and wholeness into the lives of those around them.

During the training you will have two opportunities to break into groups of two and actively listen to someone, using the Acorn listening model, for up to five minutes.

Through attending this event you will:• understand the value and impact of good listening • identify what stops you from listening well• grow your capacity to listen to feelings• consider non-verbal communication and the impact of technology• recognise the difference between sympathy and empathy• practise active reflective listening skills.

As part of the training each participant is provided with a PDF handout and there will be opportunities to practise listening skills during the course.

Join this event as a group!

We might not be able to meet in person at the moment, but you can still join as a group. Whether you are a homegroup, employees, a church, or a group of friends; learn together in ministry and skills for the journey of Christian healing. You will be placed in to your own breakout room during times of discussion and ministry, and back with the whole group for the main input. This is a great way to meet and journey together with your own familiar community when we can’t meet in person. What happens when we can meet face to face? Easy, you can still join us from one screen but you get the valuable experience of being together in the same room. This ideally suits groups of 2-10. We look forward to seeing you!

Please note that this training will be conducted using the Zoom platform.

Prior to taking part please download the free version of Zoom onto your chosen device make sure that your speakers and microphone are working well.

After you have booked your place you will receive an email a couple of days prior to the start of the course inviting you to take part via zoom.

The cost for this two part event is £45 per person

Part 2 will take place on 9 February 2pm - 4.30pm

Ministry Skills For The Journey of Christian Healing

Ministry skills for the journey of Christian Healing.

Through training, service and resources we provide a safe and effective Christian context in which people can experience personal and community wholeness, through exploring the essential elements of Healing.

Established in 1983 by Bishop Morris Maddocks, Acorn has been at the forefront of providing people, regardless of their circumstances, background or life choices, with the opportunity to experience the 'shalom' - a life-encompassing peace - that is at the heart of the Christian message. Shalom impacts every area of a person's life - relationships, physical and spiritual wellbeing and emotional wholeness.

Acorn remains engaged in, and committed to being a transformative agent in today's multifaceted society. Our training events are divided into three Academies:

- Ministry Academy (events where guests can receive ministry for healing)

- Training Academy (training in Christian healing)

- Healing Academy (preparing you for Healing Hubs)
