Part 2 - Tuesday 14th September - mode/venue to be confirmed   Handling Expectations


Who is it for?

This event is initially offered to clergy hosting CYD Mission Enablers (Cohorts 3&4) – who are encouraged to book early to secure their place. There will also be spaces for other clergy.

As we know from experience, ministry is challenging. That’s especially true when change is in the air. How we experience that challenge is influenced by several factors – not least the current state of our personal resilience.

James Lawrence, over this two-day course, will help us to understand some of the key factors at play, and to find good ways forward for further strengthening and developing our personal resilience.

Day 1 (May 18) explores a framework for thinking about well-being and offers a variety of practical insights into how to build resilience.

Day 2 (Sept 14) will explore how to handle expectations well, both other’s expectations of us and our own expectations of ourselves, and what appropriate boundaries might look like for those in ordained ministry.

The ideal is for participants to engage with both days, but they can also be booked separately.

James is Leadership Principal at CPAS, and brings substantial experience of working with many clergy on the real challenges of ministerial life, as well as a great gift of training and communicating.
