Soon after taking up a post of first responsibility, clergy will receive an invitation from their area bishop to participate in a developmental learning community with other new incumbents across the diocese. Clergy who have been newly appointed to associate priest roles are also invited to join the learning community, in preparation for potentially taking up incumbency roles in future.
The programme aims to provide a temporary learning community where you can learn and develop alongside your peers from elsewhere in the diocese. It offers opportunities to reflect on the new context and how you are inhabiting your new role. Topics covered include wisdom in leadership, collaboration, and handling conflict creatively. This learning community meets in a combination of residential gatherings and online meetings.
Please contact your Parish Development Adviser for further details.
