Leadership in Rural Multi-Parish Benefices.

Windmill with children and adults sitting beneath the sailsTuesday 27 September 10am - 3.30 pm

Saint Mary’s Convent, Denchworth Road, Wantage, OX12 9AU

Consider how leadership might be exercised in one’s own rural situation. We shall explore a range of leadership models, including oversight and chaplaincy, the role context has to play, and how leadership might be developed. As much of the best leadership is shared, we suggest clergy bring at least one lay leader from their benefice with them.
