A day about communication - 

Playing my part in the changing Church


In these times of rapid change, how do we discover God’s desires, communicate effectively with one another and work together with genuine hope? This day will help you:


  • to learn the basic skills of discernment
  • to understand better the challenges that we face in times of change
  • to develop some practical strategies for more effective communication and better collaboration.


 The day will be led by Ruth Holgate & Fr David Smolira, please see their profiles below.
