Our Next Study Day - Thursday, 5 February 2015, 10 am - 3 pm
Theology, Leadership & Change With Dr Ian Duffield
A workshop to help participants deal with issues of Leadership & negotiating change. Ian says;
"My hope is that the day will give everyone a greater insight into leadership and the management of change in the church from a theological perspective. The day will consider different leadership styles and how they may be understood theologically and how they relate to change. In a church where change is encouraged and needs to be managed, and where leadership expected of clergy, and increasingly laity, it is not always clear that these matters are thought about thoroughly enough, both theologically and practically. This day hopes to address that situation."
