Description

The latest in our series of TISCA Chaplains’ Conferences is to be held at Elim Conference Centre, West Malvern, from 6.00 pm on Monday 9 October to 2.00 pm on Wednesday 11 October 2017.

The Scriptures are the great resource at the disposal of each Christian believer and each school chaplain. But how can we use the Bible effectively in our work with pupils and young people today? Simon Austen will open up the Scriptures to us in a series of four Bible Readings over the three days of the conference, while our special speakers will each deal with a separate aspect of biblical truth and its application: Prof. John Nolland will speak about The Bible and Sex Ethics today, Dr. Lee Gatiss will address The Bible, Luther and the Reformation, while Toni Coulton will urge us to think about Chaplaincy Outside the Box. We shall also have our usual session for sharing best practice and ideas with each other, and will close with a united service of Holy Communion.

All of us need a time away, even in the midst of a busy term and all the pressures that school life brings. This conference provides the ideal opportunity for that. We have a first-rate set of speakers, and a programme that will prove stimulating, challenging and relevant to what chaplains face in schools. Elim Conference Centre is a beautiful venue for a consultation of this type—easy to reach yet peaceful, comfortable and well-equipped. All the rooms are ensuite and the food is excellent. There will be opportunities to relax in the grounds, or to walk on the Malvern Hills. Best of all will be the opportunity to interact with other chaplains in other schools in a constructive, friendly, non-threatening environment. This will be the latest in a series of TISCA Chaplains’ Consultations that we have been holding at intervals of roughly 18 months ever since 2005: each of the conferences has proved to be a time of blessing and encouragement for those who were able to attend. Please come to the conference if you can, and let us know if you require any further information: tisca@btinternet.com The conference will start with supper at 6.00 pm on Monday 9 October and will conclude with lunch on Wednesday 11 October 2017. To book your place, please use the response form provided below. Elim Conference Centre is set in a former Country House Estate in the heart of the Malvern Hills. It is easily accessible from the M5 (Junction 7) or by rail (Great Malvern or Malvern Link Stations). There are fine views from the centre and easy access to the Malvern Hills at the top of the campus. This will be our second conference in this beautiful site. Please see directions for travel below.
