Event description

Description

For Ministers, lay workers or circuit leaders who would like to receive the training independently of or ahead of their circuit

Bookings: balla@methodistchurch.org.uk

‘I have applied the learning immediately in the churches I serve as a circuit minister and it had been extremely helpful’

Intended as a ‘foundation’ day by the end of which participants will:

  • Understand how conflict works, in ourselves, our churches and faith communities and
  • Develop simple tools to transform conflict

This training has been designed by Place for Hope in response to the report ‘Positive Working Together’ which was warmly received by the Methodist Conference 2014

‘Conflict and disagreement threads its way through the Biblical narrative and human existence, as do difficult conversations between those of different views. There are many stories in which Jesus provokes or offers fresh thinking, through story rather than confrontation. Mediation in a church context requires that we do so from a recognition of our own imperfections and our need of grace. Brokenness requires to be acknowledged; once done, there are then prospects of having the difficult conversations about our broken-ness with feelings of regret over that division, asking the question ‘How long can the Church go on paying the price of division?
